Accessibility is a Moral Imperative

The session will consist of stories, both personal and otherwise, of how iOS accessibility has changed the world for countless people. I will transition into examples of how ignoring accessibility on the part of developers has a deleterious effect on those users. Such neglect creates a discriminatory gap between those who can get full use from their devices, and those who can’t. Because Apple has already done practically all of the heavy lifting, it is unconscionable to fail blind and partially sighted users in this way. I will follow this with three examples of little known accessibility features that are in iOS that are often neglected or blocked by developers. I will conclude with a call to action for developers that will encourage them to be more inclusive, and increase their revenue streams.
