Mobile apps are playing a larger and larger role in the way we communicate, work, and learn. As such, it is critical that apps are designed to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. Mobile apps are not accessible by accident. They must be purposefully planned, built, and tested for accessibility. Inaccessible apps deprive users with disabilities of experiences and opportunities that other people take for granted, and they put companies at legal risk for discrimination lawsuits.

This course will teach you how to identify accessibility problems in native mobile apps and how to code them with accessibility in mind. You'll learn how to use native accessibility APIs to add all the necessary accessibility properties and support to your apps.
