Announcing Our Upcoming [Webinar] on Android Mobile Accessibility!
Developers & UI Designers: You Won’t Want To Miss This
Do you know accessibility best practices for web development, but you aren’t sure how to test the accessibility of your apps? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. It’s time to recognize that web developers and user interface designers are responsible for making their apps accessible to all.
Deque is excited to announce its upcoming live webinar on in-depth mobile accessibility practices for an Android operating system! Over the past few months, our mobile accessibility team has been working hard on designing mobile accessibility testing tools for developers, and we would like to share with you our best practices.
What Am I Going to Learn?
This webinar will be presented by our mobile accessibility guru, Chris McMeeking on September 19th at 2:00 PM EST. It will be an hour long and is open for anyone to join, but it would be best if you are familiar with TalkBack and have a basic understanding of accessibility before you attend.
The content of this webinar is designed to educate application developers on how they can identify basic accessibility issues in a native app for Android. Compared to our last webinar on native mobile accessibility, this series is aimed at the specific practices of accessibility testing for Android in an agile development team. Chris will also deep dive into learning advanced accessibility APIs and how they will be tailored towards an Android operating system.
Lastly, Chris will be doing API Demos from Deque’s Android Pattern Library. He will also go through advanced API Demos and demos from good and bad apps in the wild!
