Android Accessibility Testing and Fixing in 30 seconds

The Google Accessibility team recently invited Android developers from around the Bay Area to spend an afternoon learning how to make their applications accessible. The event showed these developers how easy it is to make their applications as accessible as possible. One of the tools featured was Android Lint. I was so impressed by the functionality that I made the following video: Android Accessibility Solution in 30 Seconds

Android Lint quickly scans the files within the project to find potential problems. Developers can quickly navigate to the offending code and fix the issue. Within 30 seconds, a developer can find an image that lacks a contentDescription, open the file, add the attribute, and save the file.

Accessibility is more than making sure images have alternate text. I work with engineers, product managers, and designers to understand how accessibility impacts the users, set realistic deadlines, and create the solutions to provide a delightful experience to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive ability.
