MobileThinking ♡ Accessibility

Accessibility is a critical issue in the development of custom solutions. At MobileThinking, we firmly believe that all users, regardless of their abilities, should be able to enjoy the benefits of our clients' solutions. That's why we apply rigorous best practices to ensure that our products are accessible to all.
Here are some of the best practices we apply at MobileThinking:
  • Planning for accessibility by design: We consider accessibility at the design stage of the business solutions we work on. Wherever possible, we include accessibility experts early in the development process to ensure that all aspects of the user interface are accessible to users.
  • Use of accessibility standards: We follow international accessibility standards, such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, as closely as possible to ensure that our clients' products meet accessibility requirements.
  • Use of testing tools: We use accessibility testing tools to ensure that the solutions we advise are compatible with assistive technologies such as screen readers and alternative keyboards (
  • Ongoing evaluation: We carry out ongoing accessibility evaluations of the products we develop to try to maintain high standards of accessibility.
We are passionate about the field of accessibility and inclusiveness but it is not always easy to deal with. Indeed, some of the recommended practices for epicene writing can make content less accessible. For example, the use of a midpoint to mark the inclusion of male and female genders can cause reading difficulties for people with vision or cognitive difficulties. Similarly, the use of abbreviations or new terms to avoid traditional binary writing can cause confusion and misunderstanding for readers who are not familiar with these terms.


These choices are almost philosophical or political, and are, for us, of the utmost importance.

In conclusion, accessibility is a crucial aspect of designing custom solutions. At MobileThinking, we have rigorous practices in place to ensure that our products are accessible to all users. We will continue to work to improve the accessibility of our products to ensure that we meet the needs of all users, regardless of their abilities.
