A design solution that focuses on a excluded disabled or impaired group of users can benefit all users. For example, closed captions on videos for deaf or hard-of-hearing users can be helpful for those in an environment with a lot of background noise.
It's critical that we provide users control so they can access and interact with content in way that they prefer. Don't disable platform features such as zoom, contrast and font size settings, and enable the ability to turn off things like parallax scrolling, animations, and infinite scrolling.
Inclusive design is a win-win for customers and businesses. It expands your product’s reach, sparks innovation, and helps your company take on a position of social responsibility.
