What to Remember About Mobile Accessibility

Addressing accessibility may seem like it takes a number of steps; however, once you get over the initial learning curve, it shouldn't be that difficult and instead become part of your normal development process!

  • Always be sure that, regardless of the input method, the user can get to all parts of the content that need to be interacted with.
  • Ask yourself if the complex interactions really need to be that complicated
  • Assure that all visual components including layout, text, graphics,tables, etc. still work appropriately at higher and lower scales of magnification
  • Make sure the user is able to move through the application in the most effective way
  • Be sure that your color palette always meets minimum standards
  • Make sure all your components have appropriate labels and/or alt text
