QuickBooks Desktop Accessibility - How we did it.

A session at ATIA 2014 Orlando Conference

Find out how QuickBooks Desktop for Windows was rebuilt to make it accessible. QuickBooks for Desktop was originally developed before Microsoft’s accessibility APIs. The program was built upon custom drawn elements and the accessibility was always minimal.

However, a small group of developers and users worked together in 2013 to fix the issues within the core and added screen reader scripting to make QuickBooks 2014 accessible.

This presentation was developed for the ATIA 2014 conference in Orlando to show what is possible, even with a legacy product, when there is a commitment to making an accessible product.
