  • Anyone interested in learning more about accessibility

 

Why should I attend?

 

  • To decrease expensive rework, by catching issues early
  • To decrease issues caught in later phases, like the mandatory certification phase of your mobile application
  • Improving accessibility in your application will widen your user base and increase the user experience
  • Because accessibility is everyone’s responsibility

 

What will I learn?

 

ABC’s of Accessibility

  • What are the different type of disabilities
  • How do they affect our users
  • WCAG 2.0 and 2.1
  • What are KP’s policies

What Tools KP Uses to Test for Accessibility Violations

  • AMP Tool and Google Accessibility Scanner
  • Contrast Checker
  • iOS VoiceOver and Android TalkBack

Hands on testing

  • Determining what to do with your findings
  • What is the severity of violations

Post Workshop Lab (Optional)
