Designing for non-visible and cognitive disabilities
Making the invisible, visible
While there have been major strides in making digital products and services accessible for Disabled people, it’s frequently treated as an afterthought. Businesses overlook basic details and fall into easily avoidable accessibility traps. This is particularly true for non and less-visible disabilities that include: cognitive and learning disabilities, chronic ailments, hearing and visual impairments, and mobility issues. Despite non visible disabilities making up to 80% of all disabilities.
