Accessible Search

Accessible Search

Google accessible Search is a totally new introduction of a search engine that displays results by accessibility of websites and then SEO optimization. As Google explains: “Accessible Search is an early Google Labs product designed to identify and prioritize search results that are more easily usable by blind and visually impaired users.

Regular Google search helps you find a set of documents that is most relevant to your tasks. Accessible Search goes one step further by helping you find the most accessible pages in that result set.” We are still expecting to see the results of this new product by Google. The company’s target is to make web design companies create more accessible and usable websites for all and ultimately attract a higher number of internet users.

Google once again presents innovation that other search engines will be bound to follow.

    What a simple concept, and great implementation by the Google. That is awesome, and hopefully will encourage designers to take their code to next level of accessibility (something we should all be doing already).

    Great post!
