Location: Room 3: Trail Room
Format: Hands-on Workshop

Session description

Testing on mobile devices (iOS, Android) will be demonstrated with hands-on activities for participants. Mobile versions of websites are covered, some of which are also testable using PCs (laptops). Learn what you can test on your laptop and what needs to be tested on a device. The testing topics will include handling traps, keyboard use, standard user interface controls, JavaScript events, touch targets and interactive space, links, images, forms, and navigation aids.

This workshop covers the accessibility of mobile web sites—responsive and m dot sites. It does not specifically cover mobile app accessibility, however many of these principles can be applied to native mobile apps.

Learning objectives:

  1. Learn about mobile testing concepts and methods.
  2. Get hands-on experience in using the new test process.
  3. Learn how to apply testing methods in practice for different platforms and different situations.
