here's a classic #Google tactic: use "open source" to get devs hooked, then gradually slip in proprietary bits. #AOSP's core apps move ever more towards proprietary, and they also do this with libraries like com.google.ar:core https://github.com/google-ar/arcore-android-sdk/issues/1538


Is it me or is #Google slowly removing accessibility support from #android #aosp apps?
I'm running android 12.1 and included calendar and keyboard are no longer accessible. Keyboard is not a problem for me, as I am using 3rd party braille keyboards either soft braille keyboard or the one included within corvus suite of apps.
However I am unable to find an accessible calendar app.
Etar is partially accessible, only the agenda view is useable with the screen reader.
Simple calendar has accessibility issues.
Have you got some more tips?


I've submitted a patch to the #AOSP to take the next step in what was probably, externally, my least popular contribution to #Android while I was at Google. Here's the reason I think it's time to go beyond deprecating `adb backup` and remove it entirely. https://www.alsutton.blog/post/adb-backup-removal/
