What is inclusive design? It is simple. It means that your product has been created with the intention of being accessible to as many different users as possible. For a long time, the concept of accessibility has been limited in terms of only defining physical spaces. However, change is afoot: personal technology now plays a part in the everyday lives of most of us, and thus it is a responsibility for designers of apps, web pages, and more public-facing tech products to make them accessible to all. Our digital era brings progressive ideas and paradigm shifts - but they are only truly progressive if everybody can participate.
In Inclusive Design for a Digital World, multiple crucial aspects of technological accessibility are confronted, followed by step-by-step solutions from User Experience Design professor and author Regine Gilbert. Think about every potential user who could be using your product. Could they be visually impaired? Have limited motor skills? Be deaf or hard of hearing? This book addresses a plethora of web accessibility issues that people with disabilities face. Your app might be blocking out an entire sector of the population without you ever intending or realizing it. For example, is your instructional text full of animated words and Emoji icons? This makes it difficult for a user with vision impairment to use an assistive reading device, such as a speech synthesizer, along with your app correctly. In Inclusive Design for a Digital World, Gilbert covers the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 requirements, emerging technologies such as VR and AR, best practices for web development, and more.
As a creator in the modern digital era, your aim should be to make products that are inclusive of all people. Technology has, overall, increased connection and information equality around the world. To continue its impact, access and usability of such technology must be made a priority, and there is no better place to get started than Inclusive Design for a Digital World.

在《數位世界的包容性設計》一書中,使用者體驗設計教授和作者Regine Gilbert提供了多個關鍵的技術可及性方面,並提供了逐步解決方案。考慮到可能使用您產品的每個潛在用戶。他們可能有視覺障礙嗎?動作能力有限嗎?是聽障或重聽嗎?本書解決了殘障人士面臨的眾多網頁可及性問題。您的應用程式可能會封鎖一整個人口群體,而您可能並不知情。例如,您的指示文字是否充滿了動畫字詞和表情符號?這使得視覺障礙的使用者很難正確使用輔助閱讀設備,如語音合成器,與您的應用程式一起使用。在《數位世界的包容性設計》中,Gilbert介紹了網頁內容可及性指南(WCAG)2.1的要求,以及虛擬現實和擴增實境等新興技術、網頁開發的最佳實踐等。
