Mobile Accessibility: Applying WCAG Standards to Mobile Apps

Originally aired November 21, 2019


Mobile applications are increasingly vital in daily life and over half of web traffic is with a mobile device. But, various barriers often prevent equal access for people with disabilities. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a globally recognized, universal standard centered around principles and success criteria to help make the web more accessible to everyone. The most recent version, WCAG 2.1, released in 2018, added criteria that specifically address accessibility for mobile users. In this webinar, learn about applying the WCAG and testing techniques to mobile apps in iOS and Android.
