Chris McMeeking is a software engineer and architect at Deque Systems, leading development efforts on Deque’s native mobile accessibility analysis products. His journey in accessibility began through a project at the University of Michigan, The ASK Scanning Keyboard. This application won multiple awards including the $100,000 Intel Innovator’s Award, runner up at the Mobile World Congress, and the Student of Da Vinci award from the Multiple Sclerosis foundation. Chris is the lead developer behind the Android Analyzer, and an active member of the task force developing these new accessibility mobile standards.
A common accessibility issue that I've noticed in Android applications is nesting active elements together. I want to discuss why this is inaccessible in a demo and who it could possibly effect. I will also walk you through where in the developer tools you can find this issue, how to fix it, and how to follow best accessibility practices.
