Instance Property

accessibilityHint

A string that briefly describes the result of performing an action on the accessibility element.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic, strong) NSString *accessibilityHint;

Discussion

The hint is a brief, localized description of the result of performing an action on the element without identifying the element or the action. For example, the hint for a table row that contains an email message might be “Selects the message,” but not “Tap this row to select the message.”

By default, standard UIKit controls and views have system-provided hints. If you provide a custom control or view, however, you need to set this property appropriately so that assistive applications can supply accurate information to users with disabilities.
