I am asking for your assistance. I have started a petition on Change .Org for Google Accessibility. I started this petition because Google declared to the world they were dedicated to Accessibility. However; their actions do not reflect this statement. Of course browsers and email are accessible. This is a requirement by law. That's where the dedication ends. I'm including some examples.
The first example is Google +. If you have ever looked at the app; there are many links and buttons which aren't clearly labeled. The useability is pretty much non existent.
For those who have tried an Android device; its not Google that provides the majority of accessibility. It's 3rd party developers and apps. You could spend a whole day trying to find an adequate way to get a task done. Of course; this is because you must find work arounds. I don't know why any blind individual would choose Android at this point. Its not like Apple software which just works out of the box.
The last example is the new Hangouts app. It falls into the same category as Google +. Links and buttons aren't clearly labeled. The useability again is lacking.
Please take a moment to sign the petition. Tell Google to live up to the promise of accessibility in their products. More importantly; tell them the disabled community is not a second -class society.
Thank you for your help!
