Resources for Mobile Accessibility Guidelines

Anyone looking for a definitive set of mobile accessibility guidelines will be a little disappointed if they’ve ended up here because the bad news is that there aren’t any publicly available ones. I’m involved in writing some and am aware of other organisations doing the same but until these are published all we have are generic resources and a few platform specific resources.

I often get asked what’s out there so I thought the next best thing would be to keep an updated list of resources. Hopefully the list below will be of some use and if you have any resources you’d like to add leave a comment and I’ll update the list.

Note: these are not general mobile accessibility resources but informal guidelines that relate to mobile and accessibility or are device specific guidelines. 




iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)

Nokia and Symbian

Windows mobile

  11. Thanks Shawn, the post lists guidelines rather than general resources but I wanted to get it in so have added it to the introduction – really useful resources. Thank you.

  12. Thanks for this awesome list of resources Henny. Awesome work there.
    Just a few little points.
    I have been trying to find more inclusive plugins and features for WordPress and noticed your comment form is the standard one from WordPress. You might be interested to know that there are a few form building WP Plugins that are better and being accessible, like GravityForms.

    Which ones have you had a hand in writing?

  15. I know this if offf topic butt I’m looking into starting my own weblog and
    was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
