Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

We are interested in collecting experiences, stories, and perspectives on people with disabilities using the Web via mobile devices. For example: What are use cases of accessing the Web via a mobile device that are particularly useful for a person with a disability? What are unique issues accessing the Web via mobile device (versus desktop or laptop) for people with disabilities?

We are also interested in similar information about Web access via mobile device by "seniors", older users who may have Web accessibility needs related to ageing. Are there cases when accessing the Web via a mobile device is particularly useful for older users, or they have unique issues using the Web via a mobile device?

Please note that we are limiting the scope of this query to *specific accessibility issues using the Web*, and *not* more general hardware issues, non-Web functionality, etc.

Thank you for any ideas you share.

Regards,
~Shawn
