Question for actual users of accessible mobile devices: What mobile devices do use as assistive technology? #a11ychat #a11y

Paul J. Adam @pauljadam

Question for designers/developers: Do you only support a specific set of mobile devices and operating systems? If so which ones? #a11ychat

@pauljadam lots of my friends with visual disabilities use iPhone with VoiceOver. #a11ychat

Do you have any web accessibility testing tools that you usually use on your desktop that you can use on mobile. #a11ychat

@pauljadam Do you support specific devices? No. Anything that can run a web browser is our target #a11ychat

Does coding to standards mean same #mobile #accessibility bang for your buck as it does on desktop #browsers? #a11ychat

@pauljadam Interesting mention by Wayne Dick re: preference for Kindle over iPad #a11ychat

Paul J. Adam @pauljadam

For #VoiceOver #a11y users read the accessible HTML version of the iPhone User Guide here #a11ychat

works not set for one mobile devices, but alomost 75% of our traffic is from Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, and iTouch). #a11ychat

John F Croston III @jfc3

if memory serves me correctly all the other mobile devices don't add up to that of just the iPad and iTouch. #a11ychat

@SinaBahram I've always found it much more difficult to measure the #ROI of #a11y on mobile browsers than on desktop browsers. #a11yChat

Paul J. Adam @pauljadam

@karlgroves Good to point out that Kindles work well for people w/ low vision by allowing custom control over text formatting! #a11ychat

21/08/2012 04:12:36 WIB
Sina Bahram @SinaBahram

@dboudreau To that end, are there tools that report good #a11y metrics with a #mobile focus? #a11ychat

21/08/2012 04:13:33 WIB
Glenda Sims @goodwitch

I learned from @pauljadam that you can use Jim Thatcher's Favelets in any mobile browser to test for #a11y #a11ychat

Karl Groves @karlgroves

Jellybean has new "Gesture Mode" & supports plugins to enable things like braille output. Has anyone used? #a11ychat

Steve Buell @SteveBuell

In terms of cost effectiveness, isn't it easier to develop web apps optimized for mobile than multiple platforms? Pitfalls? #a11ychat

21/08/2012 04:14:35 WIB
Sina Bahram @SinaBahram

@jfc3 Speaking of #iPad, it used to be 7 to 1 compared to #iPhone, now it's 2 to 1. #a11ychat

21/08/2012 04:14:45 WIB
Karl Groves @karlgroves

@jsutt actually looking into that for a mobile app I'm building. Looks compelling. Not sure about a11y #a11ychat
