Android BasicAccessibility Sample

This sample demonstrates how to create an accessible application, using a mix of different widgets demonstrating different ways of adding accessibility markup to a UI.

Introduction

This sample demonstrates how to create an accessible application, showing how to add accessibility to both framework and custom widgets.

To run this sample as intended you will need to turn on TalkBack (or another text to speach system) on your Android device. Go to Settings > Accessibility > TalkBack to turn TalkBack on.

When you run the sample with TalkBack mode on, TalkBack will read aloud the description of the in-focus widget.
