There will be a future need for accessibility to be enabled in Android builds. The TalkToMe[1] extension uses the nsIAccessible interfaces to provide non-visual access to Mobile Firefox. Using the Firefox's accessibility API in this extension allows us to build on top of current core functionality and to not re-invent the wheel in Javascript by using the DOM directly.
