A new online Inclusive Design Toolkit has been launched, developed to support
designers and those involved in product development, as well as providing a general guide to inclusive design for businesses.
The website was commissioned by BT and developed by Sagentia, a lead member of
the CITD (Centre for Inclusive Technology and Design), in conjunction with iDesign. It
took three years to complete and provides a comprehensive guide to the principles and commercial benefits of inclusive design.
Steve Andrews, BT’s inclusive design champion, said: ‘Disabled people want to take advantage of new communication technologies just like anyone else and with 10 million disabled people in the UK at present, a figure which will increase as the population ages, this is an audience which must not be forgotten. We increasingly see
the benefits of designs that are ‘customer friendly’ and easy to use. This is why we have invested in helping develop this toolkit’.
