In their words:

“If we use our own abilities and biases as a starting point, we end up with products designed for people of a specific gender, age, language ability, tech literacy, and physical ability. Those with specific access to money, time, and a social network.”

Microsoft’s document and toolkit highlights the need to put people first, to put them and their feedback at the centre of any design work. It underlines the importance of design being a means to an end and only a tool to provide people with the inclusive services, goods or environment.

Find the Toolkit here, go direct to the Manual or better still watch the videos!
