Mobile Accessibility - FREE Breakfast Briefing
Our current climate has placed a greater focus on digital as it is often the sole route for people to access key services. For those with disabilities, often needing different assistive technologies to access these interfaces, this is even more critical today. This is true of all digital touchpoints, but especially mobile which is fast becoming the preferred access point to the web.
In this session, we will look at why we need to design accessible mobile sites and apps and what to consider when making mobile accessible. This session is for designers, developers, products owners and management teams from all sectors. All service providers have a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people and to make mobile accessible for all. We will provide practical advice to help you do that.
Our session will include the following:
- Understanding why mobile accessibility is important for everyone.
- Showing how built-in accessibility features on mobile devices assist users, including those with disabilities.
- Learning about common mobile accessibility downfalls with examples.
- The legal view: what are the relevant UK and international requirements for accessibility on mobile devices.
- What the primary WCAG 2.1 guidelines are that impact the design of mobile sites and apps, and how to comply with these using practical recommendations.
Our briefing will start at 8:15 am and be hosted on Zoom - you'll be sent details when you sign up. Whilst we'd love to see you in person and provide a delicious breakfast - you'll need to bring your own on this occasion!
We can't wait to see you soon!
