Designing inclusive and delightful experiences for people with disabilities is often overlooked, leading to products that meet accessibility compliance standards but fail to provide a positive user experience. This talk will highlight the significance of implementing inclusive user research approaches to address accessibility issues during the research and design phase, enabling researchers, designers, and product owners to create products that cater to the needs of users with diverse abilities.

During this session, participants will gain valuable insights into the impact of inclusive research on product design. Research has shown that a substantial portion of accessibility issues—estimated at 60-70%—can be addressed during the research and design phase, challenging the conventional notion that accessibility is solely the responsibility of QA and Testing teams. By integrating inclusive research practices, researchers, designers, and product owners can proactively identify and address barriers, ensuring that digital products provide not only compliance but also a delightful user experience for individuals with disabilities.

Participants will be equipped with practical tips and guidance on how to initiate and scale up inclusive research and design practices within their organisations. By embracing inclusive research approaches, businesses can unlock the potential for growth and innovation, while simultaneously fostering a more inclusive and accessible digital landscape.
