TUSK - Trace Usability Screening Kit

TUSK icon

The Trace Usability Screening Kit  (TUSK) provides a set of tools that can be used to identify some of the problems that people with disabilities might encounter in using a product.

Quoting from the Trace Center website,

  1. TUSK can be used by product designers to screen early prototypes, uncovering major obstacles to accessibility in the early stages of product development - prior to usability testing.
  2. TUSK can be used by consultants doing product reviews.
  3. TUSK can be used by educators as part of awareness training related to the types of usability problems encountered by people with functional limitations.

A lot of people with a disability say, "This is who I am. I don't come here hoping my disability will go away, but because I want to participate."
