The classes in this package are used for development of accessibility service that
provide alternative or augmented feedback to the user.
An {@link android.accessibilityservice.AccessibilityService} runs in the background and
receives callbacks by the system when {@link android.view.accessibility.AccessibilityEvent}s
are fired. Such events denote some state transition in the user interface, for example, the
focus has changed, a button has been clicked, etc. Such a service can optionally request the
capability for querying the content of the active window. Development of an accessibility
service requires extends this class and implements its abstract methods.
An {@link android.accessibilityservice.AccessibilityServiceInfo} describes an
{@link android.accessibilityservice.AccessibilityService}. The system notifies an
AccessibilityService for {@link android.view.accessibility.AccessibilityEvent}s
according to the information encapsulated in this class.
