Native mobile development is still a relatively young, but quickly evolving way of development. As it continues to evolve, the accessibility problem becomes even more difficult as it tries to keep up. It is especially difficult to learn about native mobile accessibility because the experts are far and few in between and they have to keep up with the growing demand for newer, cooler looking applications.
At Deque, we are working hard to help solve this ongoing problem. Join our mobile accessibility expert, Chris McMeeking, as he explores the specific accessibility conventions that must be followed for native mobile accessibility for iOS.
This webinar will be an hour long and will be held on Tuesday, October 10th at 2 PM EST.
