IndexedSemantics class Null safety

A widget that annotates the child semantics with an index.

Semantic indexes are used by TalkBack/Voiceover to make announcements about the current scroll state. Certain widgets like the ListView will automatically provide a child index for building semantics. A user may wish to manually provide semantic indexes if not all child of the scrollable contribute semantics.

The example below handles spacers in a scrollable that don't contribute semantics. The automatic indexes would give the spaces a semantic index, causing scroll announcements to erroneously state that there are four items visible.
  addSemanticIndexes: false,
  semanticChildCount: 2,
  children: const <Widget>[
    IndexedSemantics(index: 0, child: Text('First')),
    IndexedSemantics(index: 1, child: Text('Second')),
