Thought some of you droids might bee interested.  In my opinion this is a major 
accomplishment.  Currently only two devices are shipping with Jelly bean, they 
are the sansung galaxy smart phone and the Nexus 7, which is a 7 inch tablet 
manufactured by ASUS and has the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.  It is only sold by 
Google and cost $199 for the 8 GB model and $249 for the 16 GB version.


With Jelly Bean, blind users can use 'Gesture Mode' to reliably navigate the UI 
touch and swipe gestures in combination with speech output.
With the new accessibility focus feature, you can move a cursor between controls
to maintain a target for the next action or a source for the next navigation 
You can double tap anywhere to launch the current item with accessibility focus.
Text traversal in accessibility now gives you more control - choose to move 
pages, paragraphs, lines, words or characters.
TalkBack, a screenreader for Android, now supports gestures to trigger actions, 
navigate applications, and traverse text.
Get full support for braille accessibility services (download
