This video is part of a series that works hand-in-hand with Inclusive: A Microsoft Design Toolkit.

Microsoft Inclusive Design is a toolkit for designers who strive to create products that are more accessible and usable for people with cognitive disabilities. The toolkit provides a set of design principles, guidance, and resources that promote cognitive accessibility and foster a better understanding of cognitive disabilities.

The goal of the toolkit is to help designers create more inclusive experiences that are easier to use, easier to interact with, and more intuitive for everyone—including people with cognitive disabilities. Microsoft Inclusive Design can be used to help design products that are more intuitive, easier to use, and easier to interact with for people with cognitive disabilities. The toolkit includes resources on topics such as how to design for people with cognitive disabilities, designing for accessibility, and ways to test for cognitive accessibility. Microsoft Inclusive Design also includes an open source library of cognitive accessibility assets. Designers can use these assets to create more inclusive experiences for people with cognitive disabilities.

Inclusive Design is a methodology, born out of digital environments, that enables and draws on the full range of human diversity.

This toolkit is the start of a journey to shift our mindset about inclusive practices. It offers simple starting points for meaningful change.
