Building and Testing Accessible Apps

AbilityNet webinar Tuesday, September 30, 2014 12:00 AM - 1:00 PM BST

Are you planning to launch an app? Have you already taken the plunge? Have you thought about accessibility?

This webinar is for business decision makers and app developers who need to know how to meet legal guidelines and build apps that work for every user. It will feature practical tips and examples from the AbilityNet labs, where more than half of our auditing and testing work is on mobile, much of it on apps.

Three things to consider when building accessible apps
Don't break what's already fixed
Testing apps for accessibility
AbilityNet’s Robin Christopherson and Raphael Clegg-Vinell will explain how to ensure that your app is accessible, legal and usable.

A recording of this webinar will be made available after the event and posted within this slideshare version.
