The number of mobile apps is rising. This can be seen in
the Android Play Store were more than 3.5 million different apps are
available. However, most apps have some problems with accessibility.
This paper addresses the following research question: Can we improve
the accessibility of apps with the help of advanced software development
methods? Taking the model-driven development approach into consideration,
the design and the development of an accessible app prototype is
In the present study 42 developers compared the new model-driven
method with the standard app development approach. The evaluation
of the development process shows that model-driven development can
improve the accessibility of mobile apps significantly.
