    Hi!
    Great meeting you all today, even if it was very brief. I asked earlier today if anyone had any good accessibility tools or even resources, I would be very interested in exploring them myself and especially to build them into my curriculums. If you do, please feel free to respond.
    Thanks in advance and see you all for the next event.

      The book I mentioned is doesn't cover html5 but seems pretty good for understanding overall accessibility.

      That's ok. I've got a good sense of html5. Thanks Emma.

    Hello, great to meet you all! Here's that bit of code I was talking about, just plug this into your analytics to find out what percentage of your users are using voiceover:

    ------------------------------

    UIAccessibilityIsVoiceOverRunning
    Returns a Boolean value indicating whether VoiceOver is running.

    BOOL UIAccessibilityIsVoiceOverRunning();
    Return Value
    YES if VoiceOver is currently running; otherwise, NO.

    Availability
    Available in iOS 4.0 and later.
    Declared In
    UIAccessibility.h

    ------------------------------

    There are actually a few other things that you can track too -

    Does anyone know of any good examples of responsive and accessible image galleries?

  • Rinchen Emma R.

    I have a suggestion for discussion... How to sell web accessibility to managers or clients that have no interest and/or no understanding of it
