Accessibility is a very important topic that is often overlooked or, at best, added as an after-thought. This is very unfortunate, as Apple is doing a great job in providing good and simple to use APIs, and for most apps it would only take a few hours to make them accessible. This talk aims at encouraging you to add accessibility support to their apps, by giving real-world examples of its importance.

Along the way Matthias will tell the story of how and why him and his team decided to make MindNode accessible, and which challenges they faced. Since Mind Mapping is a highly visual activity, they had to go the extra mile and faced several non-trivial challenges, like creating a linear structure of a two-dimensional mind map, adding functionality to give an overview of the structure of the mind map and so forth.
