Representing Users in Accessibility Research

Leave a comment

The article Representing Users in Accessibility Research had a very interesting point that I had never realized before. When designing things for users who have disabilities, it can be especially hard to get the exact people you are designing for, the group you would test can be extremely small, or the people you are testing on might not be able to complete the testing tasks at this moment. From this point, the article gives different options of what to do if these problems occur and who can be tested instead. One problem I had with the article though, was that it was very broad. It did not give me concrete examples to help me understand exactly how they overcome testing with a small disabled community. This would be a good article to read if I was working specifically with a disabled population and just needed general information. In that way, it was extremely informative.
