Hello everyone

I've just read a new paper which I think will be of interest to the group, about the usability of touch screen interfaces for people with learning (intellectual) disabilities. The paper particularly highlights the importance of affordances and reluctance to swipe/scroll which is relevant to the current 2.2 discussions.
