User-Centered Design for Audiences with Limited Literacy Skills with Sandy Hilfiker, Communicate Health

Wednesday, July 29th at 2:00 p.m.

Some of us eat and sleep with our smart phones. But for people with limited literacy skills, technology can be stressful and overwhelming. How can we make sure new information technologies are understandable and accessible to all users, including those with literacy challenges?

We have an idea — invite people with limited literacy skills to participate as co-creators of interactive tools and websites. By following a thoughtful, user-centered design process, you can overcome the common barriers to reaching and engaging people with limited literacy skills, such as:

·         Complex information and navigation

·         Unfamiliar tools

·         New technology

Reaching out and receiving meaningful feedback from these audiences can be challenging and requires special considerations. From our experience conducting usability research with hundreds of participants with limited literacy skills, we’ll share lessons learned and practical tips for a user-centered design process that leads to easy-to-use, accessible health content and tools.
