from The Rational Edge: Accessibility considerations typically play either a minor role or none at all in today's software and Web development projects; few products are accessible to people with disabilities or older users. The authors of this article contend that we can solve this problem by seamlessly embedding accessibility principles into established development processes. They propose a persona-driven approach for integrating accessible design into the IBM Rational Unified Process, or RUP, an iterative process used in many software development projects. They also note that more research is needed to take full advantage of the proposed approach.
