MobA11y stands for Mobile Accessibility. MobA11y is a company started by Chris McMeeking. Chris started out in Mobile Accessibility working on Ask Interfaces, a technology that would work its way onto the Android and iOS platforms in the form of Switch Control and Switch Access.
Throughout his experience working with major accessibility companies Chris witnessed the culture of WCAG centric accessibility advice frequently damage progress for the people WCAG tries to serve. This is particularly true in Native Mobile environments where a lack of deep platform knowledge can lead you to making your applications less accessible in the pursuit of WCAG compliance.
Enter MobA11y. MobA11y has three main purposes:
- To share accurate information about accessibility on native mobile platforms.
- To be a place where experts can gather and agree on things.
- Coming Soon: A demonstration of HAi1Y's next generation personal assistant platform, which will be provided at that cost of maintenance for those working in the field of Accessibility.
Information published on this site will always be free.
