      I added (missing descriptions) to the synopsis.

      The JDialog containing the file chooser (created via one of the JFileChooser.show* methods) has some problems, reported by the accessibility helper program.

      P1 - the dialog itself has no accessible description. All frames and dialogs must have accessible descriptions. In this case, it would be OK for the description to be set to the same as the dialog title. It would be ideal if the JFileChooser had a new method, setDialogAccessibleDescription().

      P3 - plaf.metal.MetalFileChooserUI$1 at (0,2): Null accessible description
      P3 - plaf.metal.MetalFileChooserUI$3, label='Load': Null accessible description

      The P3 items return true for isFocusTraversable(), but have no accessibility information. They should either return false for isFocusTraversable(), or should have accessible descriptions.

      I deleted some of my own comments here, because they were a duplicate of existing bug 4625724
