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.

i called a local at&t wireless store and most of what they sell are the
android operating system.
will mobile speak be created for this system or will there possibly be a
free open source app to make these phones talk?
i would like to get an unlocked phone with no monthly fee off ebay for a low
talk time charge when needed solution.

I'm relatively new to Android land as well, but from what I've done so
far, yes, it's accessible depending on your experience.

Android comes with a variety of development tools; there's, as you
mentioned, a plugin for Eclipse to help streamline the development
experience (auto generated project files).

However, all of this can be done by hand via the Android SDK using
command line tools. One can also specify UI elements within an
AndroidManifest xml file.

The learning curve isn't too bad as long as you are fairly comfortable
with exploring the technology stack (from the tools, to the SDK, to
the application concepts such as intents, broadcasts, services, etc.
and finally to managing a real device such as flashing, rooting,
etc.).

Hello:

I am looking at a possible project that requires programming for an
Android based device. Has anyone done this? My research to date
indicates
that Java is used with the Eclipse IDE and an Android SDK.

Regards,

Robert
