    Is there a way to assign a tooltip or otherwise uniquely identify the spin up / spin down buttons on a RadNumericTextBox?  (Nothing jumps out in the documentation as to how to accomplish this; searches have been fruitless thus far.)

    When running JAWS against our application in assistive technology mode, the buttons show up in the JAWS Links List as "Spin Up" and "Spin Down" so that there's no indication of with which control they're associated (see attached).

    Hello Matt,

    At this point, the only way possible to modify the aria label attribute values is with JavaScript code.
    You can insert the aforementioned js code inline as shown below:
    <telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="RadNumericTextBox1" runat="server" ShowSpinButtons="true" EnableAriaSupport="true">
        <ClientEvents OnLoad="function(s,a) { s.SpinUpButton.setAttribute('aria-label', s.get_id() + ' Spin Up'); }" />

    I hope this helps.
