What Kickback DoesKickback emits short vibrational bursts when the navigational control moves focus to a new item, when buttons on the touch screen are pressed, when controls are activated using the physical keyboard, when the state of a checkbox changes, and often when the screen refreshes.
This is very helpful as it can provide feedback when speech isn't available. For example, when users are arrowing around a screen that is fully or partially inaccessible, it signals that focus is on a new icon, and when users must activate buttons on the touch screen by dead reckoning, it lets them know they've successfully found the soft control.
