There are two trends that technical communicators must be aware of, and manage.
Accessibility is an increasingly important consideration when developing and delivering products, services, and technical information. In some regions or market sectors, you might not be permitted to sell your products or services unless you can demonstrate accessibility.
The growth of mobile platforms continues to accelerate. Figures vary, but the expectation is that 2013 will be characterized by a significant cross-over as the sales of tablet devices exceed those of PCs and laptops for the first time.
Individually, these trends are significant – but what are the implications when they interact with each other, or even combine? It might seem that mobile devices can view existing web content in an accessible form without difficulty. But is that always true?
In this presentation, we review key aspects of these accessibility and mobility trends, illustrated with simple examples. We explore the impact of accessibility and mobility interaction, and outline ways in which you and your organization can manage technical content to benefit from the resulting opportunity.
