Android App Developers Can Improve Accessibility with New Testing Criteria

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Android Monday, July 20, 2015

We recently reported that the App Quality Alliance (AQuA) was creating a set of accessibility tests designed to help Android app publishers make applications more accessible and easy to use for those with disabilities in certain categories including vision, hearing, speech, dexterity and cognition.

The organization has now announced that the final version of the testing criteria has been published and is available for use. AQuA resource materials are available on its website to help developers understand and implement the testing process.

The Accessibility Testing Criteria was created with input from a number of different industry organizations including:

- Mobile Manufacturers Forum (MMF), their members and the GARI website
- W3C WCAG 2.0 recommendations on accessibility
- Android developer community recommendations on accessibility
- AT&T recommendations on website accessibility
- AQuA members experience and their Accessibility teams
