Accessibility language on React Native

When content is written in multiple languages, foreign words should ideally be indicated in their respective language. For example, you can indicate a French quote in a Dutch piece of content. This enables assistive technologies to use the right pronunciation.

In React Native, there is limited support to change the accessibility language. The accessibilityLanguage prop of Text only works on iOS. Multiple Text elements can be combined to speak content in multiple languages.

  <Text accessibilityLanguage="nl-NL">Appt</Text>
  <Text>is an accessibility platform.</Text>
