Abstract

A practical taxonomy of IST functional requirements is developed here based upon occupational and cognitive factors to consider systematically:• the IST requirements of individuals with different cognitive skills and impairments; and,• the opportunities and solutions that IST developers can generate.The focus is on functionality and accessibility to IST function in the work-place. Whilst vocational factors provide the context of use, cognitive notions proved more useful and precise when considering systematically the range of accessibility solutions that need to be developed in IST. Analysis shows that this taxonomy captures the range of potential accessibility solutions.
