Hi everyone,

I am testing my PB desktop application with a screen reader (right now Narrator), my customer will come up with demands on accessibility very soon. I am using PB 2019 R3 build 2670 for this, and I am testing throught the IDE on Windows 10. I don't understand how the expected behaviour should be for a PB application, especially with regards to Datawindows?  It seems that content of fields are spoken when selected, otherwise not. When opening a window, basically only the window title is read, and if I select a dw control, the AccessibleName of the whole control is read out followed by an "Edit", nothing about available columns in the datawindow.

In my test application I have a free form datawindow with columns that have AccessibleName and AccessibleDescription defined. None of this read out by the screen reader. Am I missing any general setting? Is there any demo application where I can see how it is expected to behave?

Best regards
