IBM places accessibility at the forefront of the design and development process so all users have more personal and adaptive experiences.
By developing a deeper understanding of how physical and cognitive disabilities affect the use of a product or service, designers can deliver better human experiences on any device.
Accessibility and design
Accessibility is an integral function of IBM Design Thinking and the IBM Design Language. It is also embedded into IBM Designcamps so newly-hired designers can be fluent in accessibility principles, standards and regulations, methodologies, and the newest technologies.
Empathy in design
Understanding all users, including people with disabilities, the aging population, or anyone facing a “situational” disability, helps designers and developers ensure that each feature has a plan for accessibility.
