Thousands of Mac OS X and iOS (iPad/iPhone) developers need to master accessibility programming techniques in order to create software that meets government accessibility standards. Meanwhile, as populations age, accessibility improvements will be valuable to millions more people. This means developers who know how to use Apple's powerful accessibility tools and APIs can reach more customers, solve more problems, and be more competitive in the marketplace. Now, for the first time, there's an expert, start-to-finish guide to implementing accessibility with Apple technologies. The only independent book on Apple accessibility, this code-rich book covers every device that supports the Apple Accessibility Framework: iPod touch, iPad, Apple TV, iPhone, and Macintosh. Pioneering accessibility experts Chris Hofstader and Mia Lipner cover everything developers need to know to quickly and easily take full advantage of Apple's Accessibility Framework. Drawing on extensive personal experience building and using accessibility features, they explain: * Why it's so important to make apps accessible - and how to do it successfully and cost-effectively * How to get started with the Accessibility Framework * Why it makes so much sense to integrate accessibility upfront - and how to retrofit existing apps when you can't * How to use custom controls and other advanced framework features * How to make apps work with screen readers, magnifiers, GPS, and other assistive technologies
