Each month I will be responding to a question; chosen from a pool of some of the most commonly asked ones that I have been asked over the years and continue to be asked.
This month, I’d like to answer the following question:
Making your apps more accessible
Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions; consider these thoughts.
You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and external costs and here’s how.
Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!
Especially so that now that we are living in a world where we need to ensure that we have the tools to conquer the Covid virus; accessible apps are most important. Not just for the mainstream person but also for persons with disabilities, seniors, and those who have difficulty with technology.
I have some tips that will help you to create, and develop suport apps.
- Make sure that your apps are easy to use, navigate, and understand.
- Make sure that you name your app appropriately so that its name is easy to commit to memory.
- Give your app a meaningful and appropriate name and that its name relates to its function.
- Make sure that your app is easy to navigate and that it includes instructions that are easy to follow.
- Pay particular attention to the colour scheme of the screen of your app and ensure that there is suitable contrast between foreground and background.
- Do not overcrowd the screens of your app with text that is hard to read because it is either too small or too big or that it is too jumbled together.
- Provide your users with appropriate error messages that are easy to understand.
That’s it for now. This should be a good start for you.
