Description

7 years ago
In the Android accessibility world, interactions are relayed to the AT through the TYPE_VIEW_CLICKED and TYPE_VIEW_LONG_CLICKED event[1]. If a button is pressed, the event's text is something like "clicked", if a checkbutton is pressed, the event string will be "checked", etc. In general, this kind of interaction feedback is useful on touch screens.

It would be nice to have an interface on this event with the action index in the target accessible.
