Having a basic understanding of what UX Writing is helpful. If you are unsure, check out my course “Introduction To UX Writing: How To Write Great Microcopy”
Naturally, inclusion plays a major role in UX Writing, because our UX copy cannot fulfill its purpose of creating a great user experience if it only works for a small elite of users. Instead, it should be readable, comprehensible, and respectful to users – regardless of their abilities.
However, many digital products still lack accessibility and inclusion: Not only does a lack of accessibility often give users with a disability or neurodivergent users a hard time. Also, the use of ableist language is still widespread.
What are the effects of systemic ableism on the tech and UX industry?
What does ability-based discrimination actually look like in UX design and UX copy?
How can we ensure that our UX copy is inclusive of users with a disability and neurodivergent user?
