Accessibility announcement on Xamarin

Users of assistive technologies should be made aware of important changes in content through accessibility announcements. What happens next depends on the active assistive technology. The screen reader for example, will read the message aloud.

Xamarin Forms does not have built-in support for changing accessibility focus.

The SemanticExtensions file inside the Xamarin.CommunityToolkit contains the Announce method. It posts an accessibility announcement on the native platform.

SemanticExtensions.Announce("Appt announcement");
