45*Video: Introducing The Android Accessibility Framework

49Starting with Android 1.6 &mdash; fondly known as Donut &mdash;the
50platform includes an Accessibility API that makes it easy to
51implement adaptive technology such as screenreaders. Android 1.6
52comes with a built-in screenreader called TalkBack that provides
53spoken feedback when using Android applications written in Java.
54</p>
55<p>
56The next few videos will progressively introduce TalkBack,
57SoundBack and KickBack, a suite of programs that augment the
58Android user interface with alternative output. 
59</p>
60<p>
61All of these special utilities are available through option
62<i>Accessibility</i> in the Android Settings menu. Once activated, the
63accessibility settings are persistent across reboots, i.e., you
64need enable these tools only once.
65</p>
66
67<p>
68Notice that because I have accessibility  enabled on my phone,
69all user actions produce relevant auditory feedback. Thus, each
70item is spoken as I
71move through the various options in the settings menu. The spoken
72feedback also indicates the state of an item as appropriate.
73</p>
74<p>
75Activating SoundBack produces non-spoken auditory feedback;
76KickBack produces haptic feedback.
