Developing Accessible Experiences on iOS

Date & Time
Tuesday, March 19, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT

Native mobile applications are often seen as a copy of their web counterpart, but they can serve different purposes. Although the principles of accessibility are the same, the technical approaches and solutions can be quite different. On mobile, you can be challenged by gestures, accessibility actions, visual, auditory, and vibrational notifications, as well as creating an intuitive interface. iOS offers an extensive range of accessibility features and resources that enable developers to create a more inclusive experience for all users.

How can we effectively adopt an accessibility-first approach to develop for mobile devices, taking into account their intricate layers of complexity? What can we learn from Apple's ecosystem, design system, and components to customize the user experience? How can we leverage Apple's accessibility frameworks to do so? And how can we test and validate our accessibility enhancements are working as intended?

Accessibility is a journey. Incorporating accessibility into the development process does not guarantee an accessible solution. Iterating based on customer feedback is essential to help ensure that the solution is understandable, interactive, and navigable for all users.

Follow along as we take you on a journey through Intuit's development process, from the initial round of requirements gathering, through the design and development stages, and ultimately to customer testing.
