Accessibility order on React Native

Assistive technologies try to determine a logical accessibility order based on the placement and properties of the elements on the screen. In Left-to-Right languages, the order goes from top to bottom, from left to right. If this order is not optimal, you can override the accessibility order that assistive technologies follow.

React Native does not have support for changing the focus order. You can use the accessible prop to indicate that a view should be focusable. The child elements get grouped together.

More information about the lack of support for changing accessibility order can be found inside Discussion 389 of the React Native Community.
