This enables a quantification of the number of users who can use a specific design. To date, there has been some success in identifying data sets and appropriate impairment and capability models for perception and movement in this novel “inclusive” research context. However, previous attempts to do so for cognitive aspects of product feature interaction have encountered a lack of suitable data and models. 14 Measuring the Capability-Demand Relationship in Interaction Inclusive design, as developed by this approach, examines designed product or interface features with particular attention to the functional demands they make on the perceptual, thinking and physical capabilities of diverse users [10, 18, 35, 45].

Of course, many other conditions such as Down’s syndrome and multiple sclerosis (MS) may affect cognitive capability either directly, through language learning and use, or indirectly through its effects on hearing, speech production and writing. Of all the sources of variations discussed, many differentially affect normal population ranges of capability. They may be rapidly changing and vary in intensity both within and between individuals, leading to a demanding design environment that requires close attention to conflicting user requirements and a better understanding of user capability.
