Mobile and accessibility: the good, the bad and the ugly
This is a fun talk, with lots of gasps and laughter. It is example after example of mobile accessibility fails - but they just look like mobile fails! In this way I try and stress that a usability issue is really an accessibility issue, and making a mobile site accessible actually makes it usable too. I talk about specific mobile accessibility features: pinch zoom, native screen readers, haptic keyboard etc, and system accessibility settings: font size, screen rotation, high contrast etc
