How to make the screen reader to work with textblock and flyout control in xaml RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I am doing the accessibility test for our windows store app (8.1). There are some pages are flyout, on which there is a textblock. The problem for the current implementation is Narrator just read Popup Windows open when opening a flyout. I hope to reader a customized title for the popup window that can identify which window opened. I tried automationproperties.name for flyout, it does not helpful. I also tried to make the reader to use the textblock in the popup windows, via set the accessibility.view to "Control", it does not work either. 

    Could someone hit the same issue, any idea on how to make it work?
