An Event Apart Notes: Cindy Li, Inclusive Design

Usability should be called inclusive design so we don’t forget that we shouldn’t leave anyone out!

Indifference toward people = design cardinal sin!

VisionSim – usability ios app.

When designing and coding, think of those with disabilities! (use alt tags properly)
– It’s a big business

Think of color blindness which is a very common “disability” and use a healthy contrast in text on backgrounds.

LayerVault – version control for designers.

Tools – – screen viewing modified for color blindness.

Use technologies to make smart decisions

Keyboard shortcuts [shift + ?] – as seen in google mail and yahoo mail…

Contrast for text and good color choices.

Captcha, could there be a worse experience?

Look at projects in the context in which they may/will be used. Test In Context.
