  • Countering design exclusion: bridging the gap between usability and accessibility 

    Keates, Simeon; Clarkson, P. John (Springer Verlag, 2003-10)
    It is known that many people are being excluded unnecessarily from using products, services and environments that are essential for supporting independence and quality of life. Such exclusion often arises from designers ...
  • Critical user forums: an effective user research method for inclusive design 

    Dong, Hua; Clarkson, P. John; Cassim, Julia; Keates, Simeon (Berg Publishers, 2005-07)
    Inclusive or universal design is about designing more accessible products and services for the widest possible range of users, regardless of age and capabilities. It requires better understanding and empathy with all ...
  • Design for participation: providing access to e-information for older adults 

    Keates, Simeon; Clarkson, P. John; Robinson, Peter (Springer Verlag, 2004-06)
    Electronic information sources are becoming increasingly more prolific and offer a huge potential for those able to use them. However, for those unable to access those services, there is the risk of being further disadvantaged ...
  • Developing a practical inclusive interface design approach 

    Keates, Simeon; Clarkson, P. John; Robinson, Peter (Elsevier, 2002-07)
    It is known that many products, both software and hardware, are not accessible to large sections of the population. Designers instinctively design for able-bodied users and are either unaware of the needs of users with ...
  • Investigating perceptions of manufacturers and retailers to inclusive design 

    Dong, Hua; Clarkson, P. John; Ahmed, Saeema; Keates, Simeon (Berg Publishers, 2004-11)
    This paper describes a study into industry perceptions of barriers and drivers for inclusive design. The study investigated perceptions of manufacturers and retailers of consumer products in the United Kingdom (UK) and ...
  • Movement time for motion-impaired users assisted by force-feedback: effects of movement amplitude, target width, and gravity well width 

    Hwang, Faustina; Keates, Simeon; Langdon, Patrick; Clarkson, P. John (Springer Verlag, 2005-12)
    This paper presents a study investigating how the performance of motion-impaired computer users in point and click tasks varies with target distance (A), target width (W), and force-feedback gravity well width (GWW). Six ...
  • A submovement analysis of cursor trajectories 

    Hwang, Faustina; Keates, Simeon; Langdon, Patrick; Clarkson, P. John (Taylor & Francis, 2005)
    Understanding human movement is key to improving input devices and interaction techniques. This paper presents a study of mouse movements of motion-impaired users, with an aim to gaining a better understanding of impaired ...
  • The use of cursor measures for motion-impaired computer users 

    Keates, Simeon; Hwang, Faustina; Langdon, Patrick; Clarkson, P. John; Robinson, Peter (Springer Verlag, 2002-11)
    “Point and click” interactions remain one of the key features of graphical user interfaces (GUIs). People with motion-impairments, however, can often have difficulty with accurate control of standard pointing devices. This ...
  • User models and user physical capability 

    Keates, Simeon; Langdon, Patrick; Clarkson, P. John; Robinson, Peter (Springer Verlag, 2002-06)
    Current interface design practices are based on user models and descriptions derived almost exclusively from studies of able-bodied users (Keates et al., 1999). However, such users are only one point on a wide and varied ...
