Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to build upon past work on digital wallets to establish design
requirements for an inclusive digital wallet(s). This research takes an inclusive design approach
to define the design requirements, such that the design will be suitable for a wide range of
people. The literature review shows a limited number of studies on how textile wallet design
informs the design of digital wallets. This research contributes to this topic by combining the
concepts of Inclusive Design with the AEIOU framework and Human-Artifact Model to reimagine the
design of digital wallets. Rich qualitative information regarding habits and existing textile
wallet preferences was gathered by conducting semi-structured interviews with potential users who
had visual and dexterity challenges. Three different forms of digital wallet designs were also evaluated during the interviews. The results are presentedto provide a new understanding of digital wallet design in the domain of Inclusive Design.
