From Inclusive to Exclusive?

Front page of Vasilis van Gemert's slide show.At Accessibility Scotland 2018 Conference, Vasilis van Gemert described how he flipped the Paciello Group’s web Inclusive Design Principles and turned them into a set of Exclusive Design Principles.  Instead of designing exclusively for ourselves, he says, he started to design tailor-made solutions for – and together with – people with disabilities. This was part of a design challenge:The Good, The Bad, and The Interesting Exclusive Design Challenge. In the video of his 30 minute talk, Vasilis shows the results of these experiments, and shares all the insights he gained during his research. The webpage has a transcript of the talk and you can also download the slides.  Basically, he looked at specific requirements that only some people need so that he could make them inclusive.
