Abstract: This paper describes a new method for supporting the design of inclusive products that has the potential to reflect better the needs of the user. The method is based on the notion of scripting derived from cognitive psychology. The scripting paradigm used entailed two major elements, described as tangible and intangible influences on the design process. We focus on the intangible influences, such as: social-cultural and individual-personal factors that affect the design. The scripting approach is illustrated with a case study and the natures of the references recorded during the design are examined in order to highlight the processes relating explicit reference to influences on the resulting artifact. Finally, we examine the possibility that hidden cognitive processes may limit, shape and control the design by intervening between recorded references and derived influence, whether tangible or intangible.
