Join Kevin Favro for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessibility Inspector, part of iOS App Development: Accessibility.
- When designing and developing for accessibility…it's important we test our apps…to ensure all features and functionality…are exposed and accessible to all users.…Apple provides the Accessibility Inspector,…a tool we can use to audit our apps…which makes it easy to find, diagnose, and fix…common accessibility issues.…It can perform automatic accessibility audits,…has an interactive mode, that allows us…to point to different elements on the screen…and view relevant accessibility information,…and even provides live previews…of important accessibility settings…without having to leave our app.…
In this video, we'll run the Bridges app…through the Accessibility Inspector…and find issues which we'll be fixing in later chapters.…Here, I have Bridges running in the simulator.…It's a fully functioning app,…that was built without paying…any attention to accessibility.…But as we move along through the course,…we'll find issue and see how easy they are to resolve.…If you'd like, you can download the exercise files…and follow along as we inspect our app.…
