Accessibility focus on Flutter

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.

Flutter does not have built-in support for changing accessibility focus. See Flutter issue #59594 for more information.

You could implement your own platform channels to call the native Android and iOS methods to move accessibility focus.

Do not use FocusNode or Semantics.focused, these methods should only be used for keyboard or input focus.
