Show Notes

  • Current Web Content Accessibility Guides (WCAG). Note: these are only a starting point, not a be-all-end-all. A great accessibility experience is one that’s tailored to each individual app – but the guidelines do a good job of describing what kinds of things great accessibility experiences think about.
  • WCAG Levels: A, AA, AAA – what do they mean? What’s the difference?
  • How to test for accessibility on OS X
  • Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines – best practices that can help you design a great experience for any Apple platform
  • Some reading: iOS Access for All
