Accessibility Talk, Button. Double-tap to activate.

Making your Android app accessible is more than just adding content descriptions to your buttons, but there is also a lot that Android will do for you. What do you need to worry about, and what are some talkback secrets that you might not know? There’s a fine line between a confusing and unusable app, and a verbose and annoying app. How do we find the middle ground?

Recycler views and bottom bars and hyperlinks, oh my! In this talk we’ll go through how to use and implement some standard Android widgets, typical views that can be constructed with them, and all the accessibility pitfalls along the way. Can all of these be used without looking at the screen?
