This talk will give you some insight in the problems of designing inclusive user interfaces for people with a wide range of cognitive abilities and prior experience. I will present image schema theory as an approach that taps prior experience at the sensorimotor level. Image schema theory can complement more traditional approaches to inclusive design, provide a number of guidelines (or population stereotypes) for mapping physical user interface elements to abstract contents, and can provide a method of designing more intuitive and more inclusive product interaction. I will present previous studies showing the viability of of the approach in user interface design as well as my ongoing research in the area of inclusive design at the EDC .
