Web Accessibility Tip of the Month

Web Accessibility - Tip of the MonthOffered as a service from the WebAIM website, Maine CITE provides the following “tip” on how to make your website more accessible to all people.

Mobile Keyboard Accessibility

The recent WebAIM screen reader user survey results show that over 40% of respondents always, often, or sometimes used a keyboard when using a mobile device. Mobile apps and mobile web content are often considered to be touch-only. This often results in keyboard accessibility being overlooked and rarely tested – mobile menus, in particular, are often not keyboard accessible. Because many users on mobile devices may be using a keyboard, be sure to consider and test keyboard accessibility in your mobile content.
