How accessibility is baked into Brand Messenger's Android SDK
The Brand Messenger SDK for Android is built from the ground up for optimal accessibility in compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.
By making your app's chat function more accessible, you are ensuring that all potential users, including those with disabilities, have a decent user experience and can easily access your information. By implementing accessibility best practices, you are also improving the app's usability for all users.
There is no additional development effort required to take advantage of Brand Messenger's entire accessibility feature set. It's baked right in!
Here is a quick rundown of the accessibility features present in the Brand Messenger out of the box:
- Fully keyboard navigable

- Link Buttons include a dedicated link icon and screen reader-compatible labeling
