Abstract

Rapid and unprecedented population ageing poses a serious social and economic challenge across the developed world. Shifts in dependency ratios point to escalating welfare and pensions costs which require radical and imaginative responses from Government and industry. The key to this is maintaining a healthy population that is able and willing to work longer before retirement and can remain independent for as long as possible afterwards as well as bringing disabled people into mainstream life and employment. ontributions focus on the following topics. This chapter focuses on design issues for a more inclusive world, explaining InclusiveCA as a software resource for designers involved in the development and evaluation of truly usable and accessible systems for users with special needs.
