In the next two videos, we'll learn…about Accessibility Label and Accessibility Hint…and how to use them in order to provide…a better experience for Voiceover users.…I'm in the Accessibility Inspector, and if I turn on…the inspection pointer and hover over my Favorites button,…you might remember how our label defaulted…to the image's file name.…This is really unhelpful and we can do better for our users…by providing an Accessibility Label.…
