iPhone MapKit: Accessibility of Annotations

does anybody know how it is possible to add an accessibility label to a map annotation? I've tried adding it to the MKAnnotationView and the MKAnnotation but neither works. VoiceOver always only reads "pin" when an annotation is selected, while the original Maps application features the correct title when selecting an annotation.

Thanks and best regards,

Chris

Answer

In your -mapView:viewForAnnotation: set the accessibilityValue of your returned MKAnnotationView object.
