Is Google Maps accessible?
Google Maps does support screen readers, keyboard navigation, keyboard shortcuts and finding wheelchair accessible transit (see Google’s documentation for details). Many users have found that they prefer the mobile version of Google Maps (particularly the App) because it tends to be more user friendly for folks using assistive technology.
When it comes to embedding Google Maps into a web page, that’s a different story. We identify WCAG violations for Google Maps on web pages we audit fairly frequently.
