Web accessibility development

Google encourages developers and publishers to pay attention to accessibility when developing products and apps.

1 billion people with disabilities worldwide

Barrier-free applications give the approximately 1 billion people with disabilities worldwide equal access to resources. But people without disabilities also benefit because they can customize their user experience.

  • Android

    Native accessibility

    Android has an accessibility layer that makes it easier for blind and low-vision users to navigate their Android devices. These services offer functions such as text-to-speech, haptic feedback and navigation via trackball or control buttons that improve the user experience.

    Android developer resources for accessibility

    The following resources can help Android developers create and test accessible products and apps. For example, you can use the accessibility test tools to find common errors such as missing descriptions, insufficient contrast, or buttons that are too small.

  • Chrome

    Assistive technology support

    Chrome supports assistive technologies, including some screen readers and magnifying glasses.

    ChromeVox

    Google developed the ChromeVox screen reader for Chrome OS. This can be used by developers as an extension for Chrome on desktop computers. With this extension, developers can test their web apps with a screen reader in the browser. In this way, they can experience their products just like blind users and conduct better tests for accessibility.

    Chrome extensions

    Chrome extensions are another way to improve browser accessibility without installing any external software. There are already great examples of accessibility enhancements that users with and without disabilities can use to customize their user experience.

  • YouTube subtitles

    Subtitling options

    There are several ways to add subtitles to your videos. Would you like to use your own subtitles. In this case, simply upload a subtitle file, create a completely new subtitle file or let YouTube automatically add the appropriate timecodes to your transcript. YouTube can also automatically create subtitles for videos uploaded in a supported language. You can then edit these later. For more information on subtitling on YouTube, visit our blog at.

    YouTube Data API

    The YouTube Data API makes it easier for developers to interact with and upload subtitles. Check out the open source YouTube Subtitle Uploader project. This is a working example of how to interact with subtitles in YouTube via the API, which can be freely used by all users to upload multiple subtitle tracks for videos through their channels.
