15% of the world’s population has some type of disability. People with disabilities depend on accessible apps (applications) and services to communicate, learn, and work [1]. With mobile apps increasingly playing a major role in our everyday lives, it’s becoming even more important to ensure the apps are accessible. By making the apps accessible, you can reach more users.

Accessibility in mobile app development is not optional. As of mid-2020, 20 percent of ADA digital lawsuits in federal court claimed apps were inaccessible [2]. The 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) makes sure that accessibility laws enacted in the 1980s and 1990s are brought up to date with 21st-century technologies, including new digital, broadband, and mobile innovations [3]. What this means is that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, interact, and contribute to the Web [4]. This also benefits light-sensitive and low-vision users.

In this paper, we focus on using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to assist applications with their accessibility needs. We will talk about the use of AI powered assistance. We will also share guidelines that apps can follow to ensure their product is fully accessible and usable, and how accessibility can be incorporated into the software development lifecycle.
