This forum seeks to bring together mobile/tablet software developers, designers, and others involved or interested in making these devices and the apps that run on them accessible and usable to persons with visible and non-visible disabilities. End-users with disabilities who use mainstream and adapted mobile and tablet devices and associated applications are likewise encouraged to contribute to the dialogue.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): sharing best practice, guidelines, and first-hand experience developing applications for mobile/tablet platforms (i.e., iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc.) that are made to be accessible to users with different disabilities; information on the latest innovations in mainstream and adaptive mobile/tablet hardware accessibility (e.g., smartphones, GPS devices, iPods) useful to consumers with disabilities; along with evaluation and feedback from end-users with disabilities who are attempting to use these technologies. As this area of accessibility evolves, so will conversations in the group.

As with any other public forum, members are reminded to exercise good judgment and conduct when contributing, in terms of respecting both workplace confidentiality that many are bound by, and the diversity of opinions that will naturally be expressed here.

This is an off-shoot of The Modern Web Accessibility Forum group on LinkedIn
