Qlik Sense's mobile responsive design provides the advantage of a screen that changes what is presented on screen based on what works 'best' on a screen's resolution. If you are designing apps as a visually impaired business analyst this presents certain disadvantages. As someone who trains and demos to those with visual impairment, I couldn't locate a comprehensive resource so I'm putting this post out with some tips I've collected please add your own.
Most designers are using Qlik Sense Server Hub to design their apps. On the server, you are using your own browser to zoom in / out using ‘Cnt +’ or ‘Cnt -’. If youusing the free Qlik Sense Desktop for either for training or development however, the desktop app cannot zoom in and zoom out as easily. There is a trick however to use a web browser to see the functionality of the Qlik Desktop. To take advantage of this approach:
Open Qlik Sense Desktop and log in – the browser will not work if QSD is not open on your computer
Go to the default URL for the hub in your favorite browser (I prefer Chrome or Firefox):http://localhost:4848/hubEnjoy. If that address doesn’t work continue to step 3.
From within QSD click the Three Dots in the upper right -> DevHub
To Zoom in/out using the browser’s functionality use ‘Cntrl+’ or ‘Cntrl-’ Note because of qlik’s mobile responsive design if you zoom in too much, the interface will change dramatically and functionality highlighted in the documentation won’t appear as expected for example that happened to my laptop running at 1920x1080 when I zoom in to 200%. You own experience will vary based on your screen resolution and the menu and the version of Qlik Sense. if you want to zoom in more than 150% use the windows zoom tip in the beginning of this section - Windows logo key + Plus sign (+).
Windows specific tips:
Make sure you make your cursor big and make sure users to make their own cursor big and black - so they can be tracked easily – go to control panel -> mouse settings -> pointers -> scheme -> Windows Black (extra large) :
