Dive deeper into accessible design, development, and testing of native iOS and Android apps

Testing native mobile apps is very different than testing mobile HTML web sites or progressive web apps.

In this workshop, Paul J. Adam explores the native iOS and Android accessibility APIs. He targets Xcode and Android Studio developers, designers, or QA testers focused on native app development.

Paul will demonstrate common native app-accessibility issues and solutions. You will learn how to use accessibility testing and development tools for iOS and Android. This includes Xcode for iPhone/iPad and Android Studio for Android devices.

Paul will review manual testing using iOS’ VoiceOver and Android’s TalkBack. He will review issues and considerations for Keyboard Accessibility on mobile apps. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a mobile accessibility master!

About:

As an open-source content management system, WordPress is a practical and popular platform to manage your organization’s digital presence or promote your organization’s goals. While it has many accessible features out-of-the-box, many changes can happen in design, development, and content entry that hinder, rather than help, with accessibility.

Let Robert Jolly, Knowbility's Technology Director show you how to conquer WordPress Accessibility. This course dives into the current state of accessibility in WordPress.  It looks at WordPress’ out-of-the-box accessibility features and examines over a dozen of its most common accessibility issues. Students will learn how to tackle WordPress theme management and accessibility plugins to include better accessibility support. Understand how WordPress handles the creation of accessible content - including management of automated and manual testing of your sites.

Prerequisites:

  • Comfortable with HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript
  • Familiarity with WordPress and PHP
  • Working knowledge of digital accessibility
