Adam Morse – The Veil Of Ignorance

Think about the current state of the website/application/digital product you were working on. Can everyone use it with the same opportunity?

Adam Morse : The Veil Of Ignorance

Imagine

Your vision isn’t 20/20 anymore, just like 65% of the population, it’s worse than that. Like 4.25% of people on the planet you are color blind. You are now 1 in 10. You are dyslexic. Your phone is 3 years old. You can’t afford a new one. Your data plan caps out at 3g and 1 gigabyte a month. The internet connection where you spend most of your time is not what you’d like it to be.

Facts

At 20 years old, your retina receives 100% of the light that hits the eye.

At 40 years old, only 50% of the available light enters the retina.

For an 80 year old, 25% of the available light passes through the retina.

When people say “My old tired eyes can’t read this” It is because they can’t.

Interneta servisu un mobilo aplikāciju industrijā toni pēdējos 20 gados nosaka gados jauni cilvēki, kuriem lietotāja interfeisa izmantošanas grūtības ir tikai procents statistikā, nevis personiska pieredze.

Divreiz samazini fontu (Ctrl/Cmd + [-]) savā interneta lapā - vai tikpat labi vari visu izlasīt un lietot pakalpojumu bez grūtībām?

Ieslēdz Acessibility-Grayscale un uzliec noklusēto fontu par divām pozīcijām lielāku un izstiep roku ar viedtelefonu cik tālu vien vari. Pamēģini lietot mobilo aplikāciju — vai interfeiss ir tikpat lietojams un saprotams?

Aizver acis, trīsreiz nospied Home pogu (uz iPhone/iPad) un pamēģini izdarīt visu to pašu, ko vaļā acīm.

Iztēlojies.
