A New Approach to Visualise Accessibility Problems of Mobile Apps in Source Code

Johannes Feiner, Elmar Krainz, Keith Andrews

Abstract

A wide range of software development is moving to the direction and domain of mobile applications. Single developer or small teams create apps for smartphones. Too often, they have not the capacity or know-how to check for usability problems and do not care for accessibility. We propose a novel workflow to bring usability issues into the development process: A quick accessibility evaluation (QAC) with 15 predefined metrics allow to collect issues. These issues are further condensed into formalised (UsabML) and the issues are tagged with the location in the source code. A dashboard view (RepoVis) showing the source code from a repository allows to spot and interactively inspect code and related issues simultaneously.
