Accessibility means making sure that everyone who wants to use your product can do so, on any device, from anywhere. When you're building a product, you're looking to create the best user experience so you can get those users to come back again and again. It turns out that the strategies people use to ensure that apps work on mobile devices are the very same strategies accessibility proponents have been using for years.
In this talk, you'll learn about the ways people interact with computers, and you'll discover strategies you can use to make your app more friendly to those users. You'll learn how color, font, and even word choices affect your users, and you'll learn how you can build a solid foundation for your app so that accessibility doesn't have to be an expensive afterthought. You'll find out how using these techniques will make the experience better for all of your users, even those on bandwidth-limited smartphones.
Best of all, you won't be exposed to a bunch of preaching about laws and policies. No FUD, just solutions and strategies for an accessible experience.
