About this app

Accessibility Scanner is a tool that scans an app’s user interface to provide recommendations on how to improve accessibility of the app. Accessibility Scanner enables anyone, not just developers, to quickly and easily identify a range of common accessibility improvements; for example, enlarging small touch targets, increasing contrast for text and images and providing content descriptions for unlabelled graphical elements.

Improving the accessibility of your app may allow you to reach a larger audience and provide a more inclusive experience, especially for users with disabilities. This often leads to improved user satisfaction, app ratings and user retention.

The improvements suggested by Accessibility Scanner can be easily shared with members of your development team to determine how they can be incorporated into the app.

To begin using Accessibility Scanner:

• Open the app and follow the prompts to turn on the Accessibility Scanner service.
• Navigate to the app you wish to scan and tap the floating Accessibility Scanner button.
• Choose to perform a single scan, or record an entire user journey across multiple interfaces.
• For more detailed instructions, follow this getting started guide:

It works well. The odd thing is when I screenshot my website in Chrome on mobile, it gives suggestions, including making Chrome's add tab sign larger and changing Chrome's url box "layout params to allow for text expansion", which I can't change as I am not Google. Google made both this and Chrome, so they are critical of their own designs.

I'm not a developer but a blind user. I found out during the scan of an inaccessible app that the report was made in Dutch =my native &system language of phone, but scanned app isn't available in Dutch, only in English. So I accidentally sent the devs of this app a report in Dutch. It's possible I used the app in a way that wasn't meant by you, but if I could tell the app to report in the language of the scanned app, this could be handy for the devs who get the reports. Another issue is that I sometimes find the scan button to scan the app I'm using, but sometimes I can't find the button. This means a blind person can't use your accessibility scanner to find inaccessible apps and help you to find the issues for making them =apps more accessible. Thanks for considering.
