Mobile Access — Device Independent or Accessible?

A session at Europäisches Accessibility Forum

Friday 27th March, 2009

10:40am to 11:40am (CET)

The requirements for accessible websites and the best practices for mobile devices overlap in many sections. Still critics insist that accessibility focuses on the person, not the device, so the needs of people with disabilities should be addressed first. But isn’t mobile use about people too? And how are the boundaries blurred when we take into account temporary disabilities caused by illness or accident?
