Accessibility Concerns with Dark UX Patterns

Presented by:

Caitlin Geier

We know that dark design patterns negatively affect a user's experience, often for the purposes of maximizing profit. But there's another, darker angle: by creating dark patterns, whether consciously or not, designers are disproportionately affecting the elderly and people with disabilities. My goal is to build the audience's awareness of the aspects of dark patterns which are particular concerns for accessibility.
