Accessibility focus on Android

Sometimes you need to programmatically move the accessibility focus to a specific element. For example, when you present a modal, the assistive technology should move it's focus to it. Or when moving to a new screen, you might want assistive technologies to focus a specific element.

On Android, you can send an AccessibilityEvent of the type TYPE_VIEW_FOCUSED to move the focus of assistive technologies to a specific view. The view must be focusable for this event to take effect.

fun focus(view: View) {
