On My Radar:

Assitive Technology and Responsive Design.

What problems does it cause, and what can be done about it?

Here is an excerpt:

If the screen is small, the layout pops into responsive mode, with an entirely different menu-structure.

But because a lot of blind people use an iPhone, this is a problem that needs to be solved a the future release I guess.

The W3C provides information about what it means to be accessibility supported (W3C - Understanding Accessibility Support), but otherwise there is little guidance from the W3C or other guidelines. This session explores the question of whether it is sufficient to test with screen readers and what the test matrix should look like.

Mobile devices have also become more accessible to many users with disabilities.
