Editor's Notes

  1. Social model of disability. It's the interaction. That's what we create. So it make sense that accessibility is part of UX
  2. ISO says so.
  3. Discussion
  4. Invisible: people think they don't know any pwd They don't get included in user research Hidden: relatively low numbers of any specific disability and assistive technology is not revealed in analytics. (pros and cons of this) Misunderstood: still. Really.
  5. Accessibility and usability both have the same approach to what makes a problem, error or barrier critical See David Travis: www.userfocus.co.uk/articles/prioritise.html Glenda Sims: 2103 Accessibility Summit: http://environmentsforhumans.com
