Designing accessible text for Android: variable font and screen sizes
When people say that it’s important to build an “accessible” app, that generally means that the app should be usable by as many people as possible, regardless of any disabilities they might have. The most common disabilities that affect mobile applications are vision and motor control impairments. For those with some degree of vision impairment, apps should be designed to allow for variable size fonts and screens, as well as for use by screen readers that speak the content aloud. In this article, I’ll talk first about designing for variable font and screen sizes on Android.
