Platinum 3 (ALLYANT)  
ArcTouch and Allyant present a compelling session showcasing the incorporation of accessibility into mobile apps for clients across varied sectors. This session will spotlight two case studies, revealing how accessibility can be introduced either reactively in existing systems or proactively from the outset. The first case study takes a deep dive into ArcTouch's journey of retrofitting accessibility into existing iOS and Android apps, originally devoid of features for disabled users. We'll discuss the logistical and time challenges of revamping legacy systems, emphasizing a "progress over perfection" philosophy for impactful, incremental changes. Allyant's real-time user accessibility testing was a vital guide, aiding recurring audits and long-term support. In the second case study, the focus shifts to a newly developed cross-platform Flutter app by ArcTouch, where accessibility was prioritized from day one. This part will outline how the project went from initial client discussions around inclusive design to actual development and testing. The nuances of Flutter-specific accessibility will be explored alongside the merits of incorporating Allyant's agile audits for early-phase feedback. Join us for a session rich in actionable insights, perfect for anyone keen on understanding the intricacies and advantages of making app accessibility a priority.
