Photo: Marcy SuttonThe native-versus-web mobile debate rages on – who is winning? In accessibility, most people say that native has won: it’s easier to create accessible, testable apps with the development toolkits provided.

In this talk, we’ll discuss mobile web accessibility fundamentals, pain points and development tips you can use in your next project.
