Chapter 3. User-Centered Design (Part 2 – Age, Gender and Accessibility)

Chapter 3. User-Centered Design (Part 2 – Age, Gender and Accessibility)

In the previous chapter you looked at the challenges involved in writing for diverse audiences. You became aware that diversity is not limited to international audiences, but that just one group may contain learners with varying learning styles, native languages, and cultural backgrounds.
