      Description

      The button to upload a file provides a text which is not part of the button's functionality. Selecting the button will not drag and drop a file into the space, but open a file browser. When a screen reader user is on the upload files page, the text that reads "Drop files to upload, or click here to browse" should read "browse files" as that is the function of the button. The drag and drop portion of the component is larger than the button. The extra text on the button regarding dropping files is misleading and could cause confusion regarding the purpose of the button.

      Is it possible to switch the File Uploader Description with this File Uploader component? It may be helpful to have the instructions seen and be announced before the Uploader button to avoid confusion over drag and drop and button to browse for file.
