Update to the Mobile Accessibility Testing Guidelines
Gian Wild -
CEO of AccessibilityOz
The ICT Mobile Testing Guidelines for Mobile Sites and Native Apps were developed in 2018 and 2019 by members of a committee of volunteers from the ICT Accessibility Testing community. These guidelines and related documentation are now hosted on the web by AccessibilityOz. Mobile technology moves quickly, and three years have passed, so inevitably there have been important changes. While the mobile guidelines are still relevant, there will be gaps once WCAG2.2 is released. After three years of using the testing guidelines, Gian talks about what is missing, what needs updating and, most importantly, what needs to be done now.
Gian Wild works in the area of web accessibility: making sure web sites and mobile apps can be used by people with disabilities. She spent six years contributing to the international set of web accessibility guidelines used around the world. She is the CEO and Founder of AccessibilityOz, with offices in Australia and the United States. In 2019, Gian won the inaugural Accessibility Person of the Year in Australia.
