Thanks for sharing this Paul. Massive amount of work!

I hope iOS developers will use this to build/re-build more accessible apps.

I had to chuckle at your directions for building accessible e-pub doc. Sure
wish Apple would just add the capacity to add ALT text to images.

Thanks for references to accessibility issues for more than just screen
reader users.

Also, thanks for the reference to Calibre - awesome.

Thanks for the Stanford link. I need to watch the video that goes along with
it. I wanted to comment on this subject because mobile is one of the most
exciting areas in accessibility for me currently. That and I'm hooked on all
these iDevices.

I actually just gave a presentation on iPhone/iPad Web & App Accessibility
at the annual AccessU accessibility conference by Knowbility in Austin, TX.
It was lots of fun and I did a ton of research on everything iAccessibility.


Some topics I discussed are:
Screen Reader Costs on Smart Phone Platforms CAPTCHA
HTML5 A11y
ARIA Support on iOS
Native App Accessibility in Xcode
iTunes
iBooks
AppleTV

Feel free to share the link with anyone interested. Right now iOS is the
only truly accessible mobile platform that comes at no additional costs. I
love that principle.

The following PDF touches on accessibility for IOS (if it is inaccessible I
apologize for the author):

I got this from the Stanford on-line IOS development course.

You didn't mention which variety of native app, but an
article I wrote a little while ago covers some of the basics for iOS app
accessibility:

Subject: [WebAIM] Mobile App Accessibility

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any information about best development practices when
creating a native mobile app? I understand that devices either include
accessibility software, or software can be purchased for them, but what can
be done on a development side to make sure that the application works well
with the accessibility functions of the device. I haven't been able to find
any information online regarding this yet.

Thank you,

Jeni McDonald
