Remarks

An object's AccessibleDescription property provides a textual description about an object's visual appearance. The description is primarily used to provide greater context for low-vision or blind users, but can also be used for context searching or other applications.

The AccessibleDescription property is needed if the description is not obvious, or if it is not redundant based on the object's AccessibleName, AccessibleRole, State, and Value properties. For example, a button labeled OK would not need additional information, but a button that shows a picture of a cactus would. The AccessibleName and AccessibleRole and, perhaps, AccessibleObject.Help properties for the cactus button would describe its purpose, but the AccessibleDescription property would convey information that is less tangible, such as "A button that shows a picture of a cactus."

For more information about properties of accessible objects, see Content of Descriptive Properties.

For samples, see the AccessibleObject class.
