    I have a request from a blind user to add accessibility features to an audio player app. I activated talkback on the device I'm testing with. I added the Accessibility library and added some descriptions.
    Access.SetContentDescription(pnlPlay, "Play")
    When I press the panels, nothing is spoken.

    I haven't added any of the SetNextFocus settings yet. Are those required? While doing some reading, there is mention of using a DPad to navigate which would use the SetNextFocus settings but my test phone doesn't have a DPad. Are there any hints on how to emulate one or other way to test?

    Are there any other hints for getting talkback to work?

    Talkback is working because it announces various launcher events.

    Try it with buttons instead of panels.

    You can use the emulator to test it.
