Hello and Greetings,

I am working on a project that aims making the product as much
accessible as possible and to make the experience delightful to the
people.  For that I have few things in mind:

1. Whenever user interacts with the app, and new pane opens up,
Talkback doesn't say anything that I think is because  the system
focus lands somewhere at the top of the pane where no element is
present, but when user swipe couple of times, then talkback focus
reaches to the title of that pane and reads it. So, is there any way
to make Talkback focus to land on title of the pane by default.

2. Whenever a alert dialogue modal opens, the default focus lands on
the entire dialogue container, thus Talkback reads everything in one
go, so is it okay to make the Talkback focus to land on first element
which is the title of that dialogue. to make it easy for users to
understand it's content by swiping.

3. The app allows users to select multiple items, is there any way to
make Talkback prompt the number of items selected everytime whenever a
new item is selected.

4. How to make Talkback prompt if the folder is empty, or there are no
search results and things like "Your item has been deleted" after user
deletes an item.

Although there are alternative ways to confirm these actions, that's
by swiping again and again to make a sense of what happened. But these
kind of tweaks would make experience better, I think. If it's a good
idea please help in finding a way to achieve it.
