Inclusive Design Toolkit

The i~design research team has developed an Inclusive Design Toolkit, as they say it, "to support designers and those involved in product development, as well as providing a general guide to inclusive design for businesses." This is an image from one of the Impairment Simulators, empathy tools that simulate common vision and hearing impairments, in this case showing the effect of Retinitis Pigmentosa on a consumer's ability to use a vending machine interface. There is an impressive set of resources for product strategy, categorization of users, task analysis and evaluation, for designers and product development managers alike.
