Accessibility is an important part of any app. Whether you're developing a new app or improving an existing one, consider the accessibility of your app's components.
By integrating accessibility features and services, you can improve your app's usability, particularly for users with disabilities.
Note: Although it's beneficial to add accessibility features in your app, you should use them only for the purpose of helping users with disabilities interact with your app.
If you want to create a new interaction model to help people with a specific type of disability, or if your app's content has a particular accessibility requirement, you can create your own accessibility service.
Increase your app's reach
According to The World Bank, 15% of the world's population has some type of disability. People with disabilities depend on apps and services that support accessibility to communicate, learn, and work. By making your app more accessible, you can reach more users.
Improve your app's versatility
Accessibility can make it easier for all users, not only those with disabilities, to interact with your app. For example, if someone is using your app while cooking, they can use voice commands instead of touch gestures to navigate.
