ASTRA Layout Containers
HBoxPane, VBoxPane, FlowPane, TilePane and BorderPane are a set of containers that position and resize their children using several different layout modes. These components are built with the Layout Utility in the Astra Utilities library.
Layout containers do not currently need an accessibility implementation, and do not voice themselves to the screen reader. It is important to note, however, that containers control placement of items in the display list, which will affect the reading order of the items to the screen reader, as well as tab navigation.
Sample Accessible Application
Below is an embedded application built to showcase accessibility. To experience this application properly, you must have a screen reader installed and be familiar with how to use it. Accessibility was developed with JAWS for Windows as the primary screen reader. Installing the JAWS Flex Scripts is highly recommended to obtain the most reliable results.
