Perspectives on Phone Use from People with Limited Dexterity

Date & Time
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT  
Platinum 1  

People with mild to moderate dexterity limitations are a large, underserved, and under-researched group, particularly in the area of mobile technology.

This talk will have three major parts.

First, this talk will give an introduction to mild to moderate dexterity accessibility. This will include how these types of limitations differ from more severe limitations and give an overview of the unique challenges faced by those in this group.

Secondly, this talk will present foundational research done in this space. Some highlighted points of discussion will include perspectives on accessibility settings, assistive technology in general, and personalization. This will be framed around how these perspectives differ between people with mild to moderate dexterity limitations compared to those with other types of disabilities. Some of the regional differences we’ve uncovered in how to approach access in this space will be discussed.

Finally, we will also give a high-level overview of industry-wide areas of opportunity to improve accessibility for those with low dexterity.
