Accessibility (or access, or a11y) refers to providing technology, content or other resources to people with varying circumstances or different abilities or disabilities.

The following resources address accessibility in some way:

  • Moving Context Kit (McKit): a kit of worksheets and cards to help designers think through context-shifting scenarios (e.g. same device used in multiple contexts, such as a parent’s tablet being used for work, but also as movie and game device for kids on the go, or for reading ebooks).
  • Technology and Delegation Lab: syllabus for a 2016 graduate course on the interaction between technical design and values.
  • Technology and Delegation Lab: syllabus for a 2017 graduate course on the interaction between technical design and values.
  • Technology and Delegation Lab 2018: syllabus for a 2018 graduate course on the interaction between technical design and values.
  • The A11Y Project: patterns, checklists and resources for Web accessibility.
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines: technical standard with testable recommendations for accessibility for a wide range of disabilities.
