Universal Design: Making Great Products for Everyone

Accessibility is usually one of the last items on a project plan checklist and can result in some unexciting and often troublesome changes.  But what if you could include it at the beginning and end up with an even better product for every customer? Universal Design focuses on designing for the most customers possible but in a practical, elegant way.
