Inclusive Design Dimensions

Inclusive Design advances accessibility, and encompasses the full range of human diversity including ability, language, culture, gender and age.  Inclusive Design recognizes that we aren’t all the same. Design must be usable, flexible, and customizable among other qualities to be truly inclusive. From policies, customer service, infrastructure, technology, buildings to everyday products—we can design so that everyone can be accommodated and included.

ODAC offers graduate students a unique opportunity to become global leaders in the emerging field of inclusive design in information and communication technologies (ICT) and practices.

The mission of the Accessible Rich Internet Applications Working Group (ARIA WG) is to develop technologies that enhance accessibility of web content for people with disabilities. This includes continued development of the Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) suite of technologies and other technical specifications when needed to bridge known gaps.

Work on the WAI-ARIA 1.0 Primer has been discontinued and it should not be referenced or used as a basis for implementation. Important content has been moved to the WAI-ARIA Authoring Practices.
