Over the last few years accessibility has been usefully rebranded as ‘universal or inclusive design’, to emphasise its obvious link with usability and UX. But ‘universal design’ (design for everyone) is an unattainable ideal, and ‘inclusive design’ (design for as many people as you reasonably can) falls down where people’s needs cannot all be supported by one design. In this UCD-13 presentation, Jonathan Hassell discusses why we are settling for ‘design for all’ when the personalisation capabilities of digital software mean we can ‘design for me’, which is really what everyone wants anyway.
