Subject: People with disabilities using mobile devices to interact with the 
Web



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
