At the beyond tellerrand 2014 design conference, Robin Christopherson talked about inclusive and accessible design (Technology – The Power And The Promise)

Robin is Head of Digital Inclusion at AbilityNet – a company that according to their mission statement ‘exists to change the lives of disabled people by helping them to use digital technology at work, at home or in education’.

Being blind himself Robin provided an insightful perspective on the difficulties people with disabilities face in everyday life and how inclusive design can help with alleviating these problems and empower these people to tap their full potential.

His message – in a nutshell – is a really powerful and inspiring statement: If we put emphasis on accessibility and inclusion in our designs we can truly change people’s lives for the better.
