  • Trying your best to assist people with disabilities is just the right thing to do. By doing so, you’re also widening your reach and opening up your app to a new audience.

Mobile App Accessibility Checklist

For any mobile app to be successful, You have to make sure that it reaches the widest audience possible. If more people can access your app, it helps you boost your download rates and eventually increase your profit margin. But for your app to have a greater reach, it has to be accessible to everyone.Many custom mobile app development companies are providing these types of services. So what does it mean when we say mobile accessibility?  

According to the Web Accessibility Initiative, mobile accessibility refers to making websites and applications more accessible to people with disabilities when they are using apps on their mobile phones and other devices. This concept refers to more than just smartphones and tablets. Other devices need to be accessible, such as smart TVs, smartwatches and other wearables, car dashboards, airplane backseat monitors, And household appliances.

Mobile technologies, as we are well aware, are growing in leaps and bounds changing the world around. It is the responsibility of the tech world to be able to reach out to people from all spheres, including people with disabilities, even if it is not directly profitable. Now more than ever, people are relying on apps for their daily necessities including people with disabilities. In the world of accessibility, mobile app personalization is often pushed to the low priority by companies and app owners, even as usage and engagement on mobile are on the rise. According to Pew Research center, 37 percent of Americans primarily use mobile devices to connect to the web, and the other  20 percent of Americans own a smartphone but do not have broadband internet at home. Yet, the primary and sometimes only digital asset that organizations address for compliance is their website.

According to the World Health Organization, over 1 billion people worldwide have some form of disability (57 million in the United States alone). So, if you haven’t considered mobile app accessibility thoroughly in your design, you’ve severely restricted the audience you can reach. Read more- What is Mobile app accessibility?
