Universal design (UD) is a legal requirement of any Norwegian ICT-solution aimed at the general public. Due to the fact that the field of accessibility is becoming more usability-focused, thus affecting disciplines such as Interaction design, it is necessary to learn more about how strategies to ensure universal design can be implemented by interaction designers using tools to support their work. This reserarch seeks to identify strategies that can be used to ensure UD in ICT projects and translate them into tools to aid in design processes. A selection of card-based design tools and their dimensions are explored in this work, to appropriately incorporate them into a fitting context of use. The research explores the perceived usefulness of method cards based on empirical data. Findings suggest that method cards require a a high level of detail for implementation as well as context-rich empirical data.
