Re: international accessibility standards for mobile app development

There is the W3C's Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0 -
http://www.w3.org/TR/mobile-bp/ But this is primarily for mobile web
content, not for native web apps - though there's much here that is
relevant.

Google just released a best practices document for Android -
http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/design/accessibility.html
The iPhone developer documentation also thoroughly documents
accessible application development.

Because the mobile app platforms are so different, I don't think there
is any international set of guidelines or standards available - and if
there were, I wonder how useful it would be across all platforms.
