Accessibility, Inclusiveness and the Mobile Web [A1]


As more and more people turn to smartphones to access the web, institutional web managers are presented with a number of challenges.

In this session we will examine the role of the mobile web versus apps, and how – we can begin to form a solution – by focusing on the needs of our users, combined with the principles of responsive design.

In this session you will learn:

  • why we need to extend our definition of accessibility.
  • the importance of putting mobile first.
  • the role of responsive design in developing a truly inclusive web.
  • how HTML5/CSS3 can help.
  • why apps still have a place.
