Presentation: Digital Dyslexia. Universal Design and the Dyslexic Experience.
Abstract: Reaching the widest possible user base is incredibly complex, but by looking at the periphery instead of the masses it is much easier to create an inclusive design. Ten percent of users are dyslexic, but few designers know how to design for dyslexia or why they should. Using the principles of universal design, this presentation will present practical tools based on original research for creating a better experience not only for those with dyslexia but for everyone.
