Building mobile applications for iOS and Android platforms requires a great deal of structure and flexibility, and ensuring full compliance with accessibility requirements is just as critical. Our mobile accessibility services ensure that your mobile website or applications are fully compliant with governmental and state requirements for people living with disabilities. Our goal is to ensure that all individuals are equally able to enjoy your digital media.
Apps and Websites are Different
You may think that mobile apps are automatically optimized for accessibility due to the accessible options available on both iOS and Android devices. While it is true that there are some innate features available, testing is important to ensure content is read correctly and understood as input when needed. This is why our team uses the same assistive technology used by individuals with disabilities to ensure a successful and effortless user experience for everyone.
Deliverables of Testing
Testing your mobile app or mobile website is only the first step. Defining a roadmap for remediation to help limit the overall risk to your organization is the likely next step. Depending upon your organization’s needs, our deliverables are include: Strategy. Learn the specific requirements of WCAG 2.0 A/AA and Section 508 , and see how they can be incorporated into mobile apps.
- Prioritized Recommendations: There are always “high priority issues” that should be identified in a development project. We will help clearly define which pieces are critical to the current project’s scope, and which can be expanded into a phased approach.
- Audit Findings: We compare your mobile apps or website against the widely accepted WCAG 2.0 A/AA guidelines, which gives you insight as to where there are gaps that require remediation, and offer remediation suggestions pulled from our Subject Matter Experts’ expertise and our best practices.
- Integration:Our findings can be delivered in a format that allows easy upload into your bug tracking software. Our goal is to teach your team throughout the testing process about accessibility and ultimately become self-sufficient, so they can apply their new skills across your entire digital presence and integrate recommendations into current and future projects.
- Support:A dedicated Client Manager and the BoIA Help Desk provides you with the next line of defense that you need to ensure project success as you work toward creating an accessible digital presence.
