In 2021, global e-commerce on mobile devices reached $2.4 trillion. A majority of those transactions were completed through native mobile apps. People with disabilities, along with their friends and families account for 73% of the consumers who use these apps.

How confident are you that your mobile apps are accessible to people with disabilities? Are you failing to fulfill a moral imperative to provide equal access to all? Are you positioned to capture your share of mobile e-commerce spend from this massively underserved market?

It’s time to do more for native mobile accessibility. Attendees will:

  • Get the facts to build a business case for prioritizing native mobile accessibility
  • Learn how to fix native mobile accessibility issues from real-world examples
  • Better understand the user experience of an iOS VoiceOver screen reader
