Accessibility and inclusive design is something we’ve regularly mentioned during the years, but we’ve never had a dedicated show about accessibility in general. We talk about what accessibility means for UX designers and what you can, and should do to make the websites and apps you design more accessible and inclusive.
Sometimes we just run on auto-pilot. Male and Female. Two genders. His and Hers. A simple, polarised, view. When gender is implemented this way in websites and apps, it can not only lead to individuals feeling excluded but also cause emotional distress. We talk to Sara Lerén about being inclusive – how we can kick old habits and design for gendered audiences.
