Centre for Inclusive Design

Inclusive design - in which a product is made to be usable by as many people as possible - is becoming an increasingly common practice, especially in software and website design. The Australian Centre for Inclusive Design (CfID) is a global network of industry experts and partners dedicated to providing design solutions for start-ups, entrepreneurs, educators, and governments. CfID works with clients to achieve inclusive design in five ways: creating more accessible products; measuring current performance and goals; evolving existing policies, products, and goals; learning and mastering tools and practices; and connecting to exchange ideas. For general readers interested in inclusive design, the Resources drop-down menu on the page linked above offers tools and guides on accessibility. These include a report, The Benefits of Designing for Everyone, which outlines how inclusive design is advantageous for designers as well as audiences. Also in the menu, readers will find "Tools" such as accessibility testing tools, captioning and translation services, and checklists for inclusive events; "Guides" to topics such as accessible web browsers; and the "Match/Mismatch" project, an interview series exploring notions of disability and designing for disability. In collaboration with partners that include Microsoft, W3C, Adobe, Ontario College of Art and Design University, Hudson, Capgemini, and Web Directions, the Centre for Inclusive Design is a thorough and versatile resource for anyone seeking to improve accessibility and inclusivity.
