Full Article:

The present paper analyses the flaws of current accessibility evaluation tools and techniques compared to the needs of industrial designers. This is part of an on-going research that investigates effective ways to supply project developers with knowledge about accessibility and inclusion. The outcomes based on empirical study conducted with industrial designers underline the need of supportive tools more integrated to design activity.
