Bichard, Jo-Anne, Langdon, Patrick and Coleman, Roger, Book Section, Does My Stigma Look Big in This? Considering the acceptability and desirability in the inclusive design of technology products In: Universal Acess in Human Computer Interaction. Coping with Diversity. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2007, 4554 . Springer, pp. 622-631.

Abstract or Description:

This chapter examines the relationship between stigmatic effects of design of technology products for older and disabled populations and contextualizes this within wider social themes such as the social and medical models of disability. Inclusive design approaches are identified as unbiased methods for designing for the wider population that may accommodate the needs and desires of people with impairments, therefore reducing ’aesthetic stigma’. Two case studies illustrate stigmatic and nonstigmatic designs.
