 50We briefly introduced TalkBack in the previous video while enabling <i>Accessibility</i> from the settings menu.
 51Here, we show off some of this screenreader's features.
 52</p>
 53<p>
 54TalkBack is designed to be a simple, non-obtrusive
 55screenreader. What this means in practice is that you interact
 56directly with your applications, and not with
 57TalkBack. TalkBack's job is to remain in the background and
 58provide the spoken feedback that you need.
 59</p>
 60<p>
 61TalkBack works with all of Android's native user interface
 62controls. This means you can configure all aspects of the Android
 63user interface with TalkBack providing appropriate spoken
 64feedback. What is more, you can use most native Android
 65applications &mdash; including those downloaded from the Android
 66Market with TalkBack providing spoken feedback.
 67</p>
 68<p>
 69Here are some examples of Android applications (both from Google as well as third-party applications available onmarket) that  work with TalkBack:
 70</p>
 71
 72<ul>
 73<li>
 74Google Maps: Perform searches, and listen to directions.
 75</li>
 76<li>
 77YouTube: Search, browse categories and play.
 78</li>
 79<li>
 80Simple Weather: Listen to local weather forecasts.
 81</li>
 82<li>
 83Facebook: Moving around on the social Web.
 84
 85</li>
 86</ul>
 87
 88<p>But in this video, we'll demonstrate the use of a very simple but
 89useful Android application &mdash; the Android Alarm clock.
 90</p>
 91<ul>
 92<li>
 93 Launch: I launch the alarm clock from  Marvin's eyes-free application launcher.
 94</li>
 95<li>
 96TalkBack: TalkBack takes over and starts speaking.
 97</li>
 98<li>
 99Navigate: Navigating  with the trackball speaks the alarm
100under focus.
101</li>
102<li>
103Activate: Activating with the trackball produces appropriate feedback.
104</li>
105<li>
106Navigate: Selected alarm displays its settings in a list-view which speaks as we navigate.
