Investigating Mobile Accessibility Guidance for People with Aphasia. Paper presented at the The 20th International ACM SIGACCESS Conference on Computers and Accessibility, 22-24 Oct 2018, Galway, Ireland.


The World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) have become widely accepted as the standard for web accessibility evaluation. This poster investigates how the mobile version of these guidelines caters for people with aphasia (PWA) by comparing the results from user testing against that of an audit using the guidelines. We outline the efficacy of the guidelines in the broader context of how they cater for various impairments and offer some recommendations for designing for people with aphasia.
