Kiosk applications must be built to be accessible and work with a screen reader such as JAWS. Learn how and when to apply WCAG 2.1/2.2 AA and AAA to your upcoming or existing kiosk deployment. How are kiosk applications different from traditional websites or mobile applications and what should you consider in developing one? Building an accessible kiosk is only partially about kiosk hardware. The accessibility of kiosk software should also be considered in order to build a cohesive accessible kiosk experience.
