Hi Mike,


At the risk of being redundant- I’ve already had to perform such assessments, so when doing so, I used the W3C WAI site Web Content Accessibility and Mobile Web: Making a Website Accessible Both for People with Disabilities and for Mobile Devices (http://www.w3.org/WAI/mobile/overlap.html) as my touchstone. It has several links interconnecting the Mobile Web Best Practices (MWBP) and WCAG 2.0 as resources. This will help you tailor your assessment to the kind of website you’ll be assessing.

Subject: Accessible Testing Protocol for Mobile Website


Hi Everyone--


I've tested websites and software for accessibility on desktop computers, but I'm about to review a website on mobile devices for the first time.


Before I developed a protocol, I thought I'd ask for your advice. Are there protocols for testing websites on mobile devices that you can recommend or point me to? It would be a great time-saver.


Please excuse overlapping messages. Many thanks!
