Inclusive Design Tip : On the other hand

A physical tip

Why do it

People with physical difficulties (including common ailments like arthritis, or hand injuries) have difficulty with precise movements.

What to do

  • Sit on your dominant hand. Use your other hand to browse your site.

Things to check

  • Can you use your site as you normally would?
  • Is anything surprising, difficult, or frustrating about this experience?

Things you could change

  • Have large click / tap target areas that don’t require very precise movements.
  • Give form fields plenty of space.
  • Design with touch controls in mind.
