Developers and Compatibility with Tecla
App developers and hardware manufacturers can implement compatibility with Tecla, in order to help bridge the access gap currently preventing people with mobility impairments from making effective use of their products and services. Whether you are looking for accessibility compliance solutions, ways to maximize your corporate social responsibility or simply ensure your products are available to, and usable by, the widest possible audience, Komodo OpenLab can help you achieve your goals. The technical resources below will help you get started. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or require assistance implementing compatibility with your product or application.
Making your Android app compatible with Tecla will not only ensure people with mobility impairments will be able to use it, in fact, it will make it possible for anyone to use your application with alternative input devices like keyboards or steering wheel controls.
Tecla leverages the built-in accessibility features in iOS devices to provide universal switch access for people with mobility impairments. This means that implementing compatibility with Tecla will also ensure your app can be used by millions of users with visual impairment.
The Tecla Shield provides a simple API that any developer can use to provide switch access on any platform (e.g., desktop operating systems) or embedded device (e.g., automated teller, checkout and ticket vending machines).
