Product creators and educators around the world use Microsoft’s Inclusive Design toolkit to create products that more people with a greater range of abilities can use to their full potential. In this session, we’ll learn about the newest addition to the toolkit, a set of guidelines to recognize cognitive differences, and the kinds of exclusion that emerge from failing to recognize them. We’ll discuss five ways of perceiving and approaching the world around us and how to design products that truly honor those differences.
