Accessibility state on iOS

An accessibility state helps users of assistive technologies to understand the state of elements on the screen. The state selected for example, indicates that an element has been selected. The screen reader announces the state of elements as it reads the screen. It is important to assign correct states of elements to avoid misunderstanding.

On iOS, the accessibilityTraits attribute can be used to indicate the accessibility state. The traits selected and notEnabled can be used to indicate the current state.

If your state is not selected or notEnabled, we recommended using the accessibilityValue attribute to indicate the state.

element.accessibilityTraits = .selected
element.accessibilityTraits = .notEnabled

element.accessibilityValue = "Expanded"
element.accessibilityValue = "Collapsed"
