Author: The Center For Universal Design North Carolina State University,
Type: Audiovisual Material
Year: 2000


'Human Factors' is one in a series of nine videotapes that presents the requirements of the ADA Standards for accessible design. It combines live footage with detailed computer-generated illustrations to explain how people with disabilities use storage and changing rooms, and automated teller machines and how the Standards provide a framework to design for accessibility by using clear floor space manoeuvering clearances, controls and mechanisms. Human factors based on the sizes and abilities of people with disabilities are the basic building blocks for accessible design. The videotape runs for 19.12 minutes.
