    Alan Viverette: Hi, everyone! Welcome back to the EyesFree channel.
  • 0:06 - 0:14
    I'm Alan Viverette and this the first in a series of videos on the new accessibility features available in Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream sandwich.
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    I have a brand new Galaxy Nexus here running Android 4.0 that I am going to set up for accessibility.
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    I've already turned it on, so it's currently showing the welcome screen.
  • 0:24 - 0:32
    To enable accessibility, draw a rectangle, starting at the top left corner of the screen, and going around clockwise, closing it off again at the top left corner of the screen.
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    (cursor does that)
  • 0:35 - 0:35
    [ding]
  • 0:37 - 0:43
    synthetic voice SV: After you turn on explorer by touch, you can touch the screen to learn what's under your finger.
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    For example, the current screen contains app icons.
  • 0:47 - 0:52
    Find one of them by touching the screen and sliding your finger around.
  • 0:52 - 0:59
    Viverette: So, after turning on accessibility you hear a ding and it starts up the touch exploration tutorial.
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    I'm just going to run through the tutorial really quick.
  • 1:03 - 1:07
    So first, I want to touch anywhere on the screen. So... (cursor on Gmail icon)
  • 1:08 - 1:15
    SV: Good: keep sliding your finger around the screen until you find at least one more icon.
  • 1:15 - 1:18
    Viverette: So, here I'm touching the gmail icon. It's near the center of the screen.
  • 1:19 - 1:21
    I move up (cursor does) [bleep]
  • 1:21 - 1:25
    SV: To activate something that you are touching, tap it.
  • 1:25 - 1:32
    Slide your finger until you find the icon for the browser, then tap the icon once to activate it.
  • 1:32 - 1:35
    Viverette: So just to get a sense of where I am, I'm going to move around
  • 1:35 - 1:36
    (cursor moves over apps, causing their names to be voiced)
  • 1:36 - 1:44
    SV: Phone. People disabled. Clock. Camera. Calendar.
  • 1:46 - 1:51
    Brows--. Your finger is touching the browser icon. Tap once to activate that icon.
  • 1:51 - 1:59
    Viverette: OK. So I found the browser icon and I can lift my finger once, and place it back on the screen to tap [bleep] to activate the browser.
  • 1:59 - 2:06
    SV: Good, to move to the next lesson, find and activate the "next" button, located near the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • 2:07 - 2:09
    Viverette: I'm just going to put my finger back down where it was before.
  • 2:09 - 2:10
    SV: Browser
  • 2:10 - 2:13
    Viverette: move towards the bottom right of the screen.

    (cursor moves diagonally)
  • 2:14 - 2:15
    SV: Phone. People Gmail disab-- Market.
  • 2:15 - 2:19

    SV: Good. To move to the next lesson,
  • 2:21 - 2:23
    Viverette: it's giving me instructions about...
  • 2:23 - 2:24

    SV reads instructiontext: To scroll through the list, you can slide 2 fingers along the screen.
  • 2:32 - 2:38
    For example, the current screen contains a list of app names that can scroll up or down.
  • 2:38 - 2:44
    First, try to identify a few items in the list by sliding one finger around.
  • 2:44 - 2:48
