Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Author Dr. Simeon Keates presents a step-by-step guide on how to design products that offer the right combination of functionality, usability, and accessibility for all consumers. He articulates why these three elements can make the critical difference in remaining competitive and economically viable over the long term. The book demonstrates how to design products, services, and environments that do not discriminate between potential users and grounds of capability. It provides case studies that illustrate the corporate benefits for designing accessibility, in addition to carefully selected and valuable figures and tables and demystifies what is involved in designing inclusive products for all users.

Book News Annotation:

Keates (engineering, Cambridge U.) offers companies in product development step-by-step instructions on incorporating accessibility into design, making it a main component along with functionality and usability of a product's user-friendliness. The design of inclusive products is not only of increasing legal importance for many companies, the author believes, but also helps a company compete by reaching the broadest consumer base possible. Designing for accessibility considers the needs not only of the severely disabled but of groups that normally elude usability trials including those with poorer-than-average eyesight, hearing, dexterity, or physical prowess. The book instructs project managers and their supervisors in the implementation of design for accessibility, including ideas for selling the importance of the concept, putting accessibility directly into the design processes, and involving users in the design process. Case studies are included, as well as criteria for assessing the ethical and practical success of an inclusive design. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
