Abstract

A wide range of software development is moving to the direction and
domain of mobile applications. Single developer or small teams create
apps for smartphones. Too often, they have not the capacity or
know-how to check for usability problems and do not care for
accessibility. We propose a novel workflow to bring usability issues
into the development process: A quick accessibility evaluation (QAC)
with 15 predefined metrics allow to collect issues. These issues are
further condensed into formalised (UsabML) and the issues are tagged
with the location in the source code. A dashboard view (RepoVis)
showing the source code from a repository allows to spot and
interactively inspect code and related issues simultaneously.
