Mobile usage is growing at a rapid pace as the ways we use mobile devices continue to evolve. Use of retail, financial and other apps continues to increase, and the benefits to people with disabilities are potentially more dramatic than for the general population.
We’ll look at relevant laws and standards as well as how various mobile platforms stack up in terms of current features and levels of accessibility level. We’ll also discuss the impact of mobile accessibility for users who have visual, mobility, cognitive or hearing impairments. Discover strategies for designing accessible mobile applications and content, including how to test for accessibility.
