Sample text

A new message was proclaimed: these groups were not special cases with special needs but people whose requirements should be considered and incorporated at every stage of the design process. Significantly, there was also a shift towards a more enlightened view that people are not disabled by their own impairments, irrespective of the shortcomings of design, but included or excluded by social attitudes, and the quality of design, irrespective of their capabilities (DTI, 2000b; DTI, 2000c; DTI, 2002).

What we need is to focus on the role of assistive technology and design as a precursor to inclusive design, to plug the gaps where the mainstream market fails to provide, and to work towards a continuum of the two through the integration of assistive technology solutions with mainstream products and services.
