What is Accessibility Scanner?
Accessibility Scanner is a unique tool that allows a user to analyze different apps and suggests improvements. It can identify specific features that could be modified to make the app more accessible, allowing both app developers and users who may want to provide feedback with a useful tool for making any app better.
How can Accessibility Scanner help?
All a user needs to do is open the target app and then begin running the Accessibility Scanner. The Scanner will identify functions of the app, such as small buttons or difficult to read text, and suggest improvements that will allow users with various disabilities to use the app more effectively. The app offers a View By Screen function, which provides the suggestions on the apps screen so the user can see the specific areas that need improvement, or a View By Category function, where a user can see all of the different suggestions sorted by the suggestion type (touch target, description, contrast). This allows users to easily navigate and understand the different areas on which the app can be made better, with the aim of making all apps much more accessible.
Where can I find Accessibility Scanner?
Accessibility Scanner can be found on the GooglePlay Store. The app is meant primarily for users who understand app development, but can be used by anyone to better understand how to improve apps. It requires an Android 6.0 or up.
