Google+ Accessibility


Google+ Accessibility
You may have noticed that I regularly call out the number of “accessibility issues addressed” in our releases. Accessibility plays a big role in our ongoing efforts and in the new Google+, we’ve optimized user interfaces on Android, iOS, and the Web for easier navigation with screen readers and keyboard controls. In the past year alone, we’ve found & fixed over 450 accessibility bugs.

Some recent updates:
* Improved keyboard support on the web: navigate, comment, +1, create new posts, and more
* Improved interactions with posts using both Talkback on Android and VoiceOver on iOS that save people significant time and effort
* Search accessibility improvements on all platforms, with autocomplete results announced when they’re available

You can read more about accessibility support on the Google+ Help Center page (https://support.google.com/plus/answer/6320404), and be sure to check out the user-created GPlus Accessibility Community (https://plus.google.com/communities/108884766040433463186).

As always, we’re continuing to listen to your suggestions and ideas. So please keep them coming using the Send Feedback menu item.
Thanks~
