Panel discussion at the European Accessibility Forum Frankfurt (eafra.eu) with Beate Firlinger (journalist), Tomas Caspers (accessibility expert), Dominique Hazaël-Massieux (W3C Mobile Web Activity Lead), and Henny Swan (Opera Software), 27 March 2009.
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?
