Accessible by Design – the NAB Mobile Banking App

Accessibility is business as usual in the NAB mobile banking platform. Feature designs are inclusive of accessibility before development. Close collaboration between Accessibility Specialists, Design and Engineers has led to:

  • Design specs which include touch target, focus states and scaling behaviour as standard.
  • Creation of a shared component library with inherent accessibility.

We’ll share how we have done this and how this leads to delivery of a mobile app which is ‘Accessible by Design’.
