 45*Video: Connecting  The Dots: Marvin And Android Access 
 46</p>
 47<p>
 48When we first launched project eyes-free in early spring 2009, we
 49promised to post frequent video updates to the eyes-free
 50channel. Well, sadly, we have been remiss in keeping that promise
 51&mdash; but all in a good cause &mdash; we were busy building out the
 52needed accessibility APIs in the core Android framework.
 53</p>
 54<p>
 55We're now returning with a fresh set of video updates that
 56demonstrate   the new accessibility framework in Android, and how
 57these access related tools mesh with the Eyes-Free shell  shown
 58earlier.
 59</p>
 60<p>
 61To summarize:
 62</p>
 63<ol>
 64<li>
 65All of the eyes-free utilities from project Marvin continue
 66to be developed in order to provide fluent eyes-free interaction.
 67</li>
 68<li>
 69The Marvin shell that we demonstrated last time continues to
 70be my default home screen.
 71</li>
 72<li>
 73We have added an application launcher on the Marvin screen
 74that can be launched by stroking <u>8</u>.
 75</li>
 76<li>
 77This launcher uses stroke dialing to quickly navigate and
 78launch applications.
 79</li>
 80<li>
 81With the launch of the Accessibility API  in Android
 821.6, and the accompanying Open Source TalkBack screenreader,
 83I can now launch <b>any</b> Android application, e.g., Google
 84Maps or YouTube.
 85</li>
 86<li>
 87 TalkBack provides spoken feedback for native Android
 88applications, including the settings menu.
 89</li>
 90<li>
 91You can use Android Market to install third-party
 92applications, many of these work <b>outof the box</b> with TalkBack.
 93
 94</li>
 95</ol>
 96
 97<p>We'll demonstrate these, and a variety of other new cool
 98enhancements in these forthcoming videos, stay tuned!
