Web and Mobile App Accessibility Testing

Nancy Kastl, SPR Consulting

If a website or mobile app is not accessible to all potential visitors, is it truly a quality product? Services, products, information, and entertainment on the web and mobile devices can be made available to millions of consumers with vision, hearing, or motor control difficulties by complying with accessibility standards. Assistive technologies enable access by converting the text and images of mobile screens and web pages into computerized voice. But these technologies cannot interpret pages that are not built and tested for compliance to accessibility standards and programming guidelines. Join Nancy Kastl to learn about Section 508 and WCAG standards, Mobile Web Best Practices, and Apple and Android Developer Accessibility Guidelines. Learn how to test for accessibility on mobile devices and desktop using screen readers and open source tools. Become an advocate of accessible mobile apps and websites throughout the project lifecycle and add accessibility testing to your testing capabilities.
