CHI 2010 - international workshop
The extended abstract is also posted in the ACM digital library
Aims of the workshop
Many people do not read easily. They may have a visual problem or dyslexia. They
may have not have had opportunities to learn to read, or be reading in stressful
conditions or poor light, or perhaps they are reading in a second language.
Is it possible to provide one consistent set of guidelines or approaches that will allow
designers to meet all the apparently diverse needs of these people? Or are there
compromises to be made?
15 researchers and practitioners met to:
- Share our experiences and critique a framework for capturing them
- Try applying some guidelines to a design problem
- Explore the question of whether one approach can work for all, or whether compromises are necessary.
