Control the tab order and reading order

You can create a tab order that determines the order in which objects receive focus when the users press the Tab key. You can also control the order in which a screen reader reads information about the object (known as the reading order). You can create both the tab and reading order using the tabIndex property in ActionScript (In ActionScript, the tabIndex property is synonymous with the reading order). If you have Flash Professional 8, you can use the Accessibility panel to specify the tab order, but the tab index that you assign does not necessarily control the reading order.

To create a reading order, you must assign a tab index to every instance in ActionScript.
