Alicia Crowther and I have pulled together this resource to illustrate how research personas can be used to create accessible solutions. There are six personas described here, covering challenges with;
- Effort and complex interactions (Edith)
- Alternative formats (Arturo)
- Visual clarity (Colin)
- Visual contrast (Keith)
- Offline users (Olivia)
- Simplicity (Serena)
You can download a PDF of these personas for use with your teams, here.

Edith represents effort. She finds repetitive and strenuous tasks challenging, especially when they require her to have a good degree of dexterity.
Edith says: “Why do they always put the boxes so close together on forms?”
- Arthritic or Parkinson’s disease
- An arm injury
- Unstable environment such as a train
- Specialized keyboards
- Switches, joystick or trackballs
- Keyboard shortcuts
- Larger touch targets
- Alternatives for drag and drop
- Precision interactions
