Mobile apps with focus on accessibility

  • 1.  Mobile apps with focus on accessibility

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a mobile app developer that has experience and awareness of accessibility issues?  The org works with blind and print-challenged people.

    Thanks!

    Give the following good people a touchpoint:

     Alex Jurgensen: @ASquared_Editor (App developer, completely blind)

    Paul Adams: @pauljadam (Accessible App design is what he does, presented at many conferences and bonus - live in Austin if you are coming to NTC15)

    If those both fail you somehow, touch base with @Jennison -- he is the godfather of digital accessibility and knows everyone. Really. Organizers, attends and speaks at Accessibility Camps all over North America.

    Tell them I sent you!
