Video Interview created by User Vision Accessibility Consultant Mark Palmer, for World Usability Day 2009 (WUD), with Ken Reid.
Ken Reid, who is blind, discussed the difficulties he faces when recycling. The video was received very positively by User Vision's WUD visitors.
The main issues encountered by Ken were as follows:-
• Ken had a system of identifying his recycling bins using tactile sticker 'bumps'.
• Certain aspects of recycling were just beyond Ken as they involved lengthy journeys across town to potentially hazardous locations (e.g. recycling and refuse plants).
• Not enough was being done to provide information to blind residents in accessible formats.
• This compounded issues Ken already has with determining the eligibility of certain items for recycling e.g. CD's.
