Synergies between mobile Web and accessibility

Filed under:

I will be talking next week at the first AEGIS conference in Seville, on the relationships between the mobile Web and accessibility.

I was asked to contribute a paper to include in the proceedings of the conference, and while the proceedings haven’t been published yet, I’ve just published an HTML version of that paper.

The paper starts with reminding of the similarities between mobile Web access and accessibility in terms of requirements, and compares the W3C best practices and guidelines in these domains, building up from the work the Web Accessibility Initiative and the Mobile Web Initiative did over the past years.
