Accessibility and Usability at MIT

Our User Experience Focus 


Understanding users and their needs is integral to optimizing the user experience. 

  • Usability is the measure of how well users can learn and use a product to achieve their goals and how satisfied they are with that process
  • Accessibility is the inclusive practice of making products and services usable by people of all abilities and disabilities.
  • Assistive Technology is designed to bridge access for persons with disabilities.
