Hi, Bryan.  Talkback in Android 2.2 is getting close to usable, but
not quite there.  The main problem remaining is that the browser and
e-mail applications are not accessible, both of which I think use
webkit.  Work on making it accessible is underway.  I think we can
count on Google to get it where it needs to be, but I can't estimate
the timeline.
