Session Abstract: Disability access with Xamarin Technologies tells you about how to make apps for people with an intellectual disability. Formerly, people thought those with an intellectual disability have difficulty reading, thus a smartphone isn’t really realistic for them. But nonprofits and startups started to explore this user base and found out a way of making apps that people with an intellectual disability can use.
Why is this important? Well there are two big reasons - firstly: If people with an intellectual disability can use your app, they can get information about their life-situation and that empowers quality of life. Smartphones for example use Text-To-Speech and principally the requirement to be able to read isn’t there anymore.
For you as developer or startup there’s also a big benefit of these apps: nearly every market is discovered for mobile apps. Every market already has a large number of existing apps. But the market of apps for people with a disability is quite less discovered, so if you are good, you can rule a whole market!
