Ensuring accessibility of mobile devices and their apps is difficult on two fronts: first, the technology is constantly evolving; and second, WCAG 2.0 didn't delve too deeply into guidelines for mobile. This has all changed with WCAG 2.1. Level Access mobile accessibility expert, Kara VanRoekel, will walk you through everything you need to know about the new guidelines.
- Participants will review the 17 new success criteria, especially the 11 that include special considerations for mobile devices and touch screens.
- Participants will be able to discuss who benefits from these new guidelines.
- Participants will explore effective testing strategies for mobile and touch screen devices.
- Participants have the opportunity to view compliant and non-compliant examples for each new criterion.
