Usability and accessibility are closely related
- Non accessible products are not usable by at least one group of users
- Technical accessibility vs. usable accessibility
- Accessibility improves usability for everyone
- If a product is not accessible for a group of users with disabilities, then it has failed at being usable by a target group of users needing to interact with it.
- There are two types of accessibility: technical accessibility and usable accessibility.
- A product should provide an easy interaction for all persons who use it.
- If a product is not usable by a group of users with disabilities, is it really accessible?
- When accessibility is improved, usability for persons with and without disabilities is also improved.
- Electronic curbcuts
- Add structure to a webpage to make it readable by a screen reader, and then you suddenly have a format that can be much more easily adapted by a PDA
