How Power Apps creator kit helps ensure accessibility standards are met
Posted by Akari Solutions
At Akari innovation and accessibility remain the driving forces behind everything that we do, which is why we are so enthusiastic about the latest preview accessibility features in the Power Apps creator kit. Ultimately helping to increase inclusivity and developers productivity.
Previously, whilst building apps, developers had little guidance on how accessible their design was or what features to improve upon. In each instance, hours were spent researching best practices before even beginning.
With the Creator Kit organisations will have the recommended "Do's & Don'ts" before using the simple drag and drop functionalities of Power Apps, along with error messages when designs don't meet accessibility standards during development .
In just a few clicks, you can receive real time feedback at each step of development.
To put the icing on the cake, it comes as a pre built, out-of-the-box solution swiftly providing everyone with the necessary tools.
With that in mind, we'd like to walk you through the Creator Kit Preview and how it can help meet the needs of all within your organisation.
