Native App Accessibility

An all-new online training about accessible iOS and Android native apps! Bring mobile accessibility consultant Paul J. Adam to your desktop or conference room on Thursday, January 23, 2020, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM (CT).

January 23, 2020 · 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM CT

Dive deeper into accessible design, development, and testing of native iOS and Android apps

Testing native mobile apps is very different than testing mobile HTML web sites or progressive web apps.

In this workshop, Paul J. Adam explores the native iOS and Android accessibility APIs. He targets Xcode and Android Studio developers, designers, or QA testers focused on native app development.

Paul will demonstrate common native app-accessibility issues and solutions. You will learn how to use accessibility testing and development tools for iOS and Android. This includes Xcode for iPhone/iPad and Android Studio for Android devices.

Paul will review manual testing using iOS’ VoiceOver and Android’s TalkBack. He will review issues and considerations for Keyboard Accessibility on mobile apps. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a mobile accessibility master!
