  • Accessibility name in SwiftUI

    The accessibility name indicates the name used for interface elements by assistive technologies.

    Accessibility name
  • Accessibility order in SwiftUI

    Assistive technologies try to determine a logical accessibility order based on the placement and properties of the elements on the screen.
