Testing Google’s Accessible Search with the Ruby Accessibility Analysis Kit

Recently Google Labs released Google Accessible Search – Accessible Web Search for the Visually Challenged. Running the search page (http://labs.google.com/accessible/) through RAAKT (using the online version) yields three errors and the search result page is using tables for layout.  Maybe I am missing something here, but how hard can it be for Google to make sure their search page is using best practices and avoid basic accessibility pitfalls?

  1. I guess they are focusing on the actual search engine rather than the user interface to access it. One wonder why their regular search interface isn’t using CSS for layout.

    Thank’s for the cool accessibility tool! I see I have some work to do on my sites…
