Agust 2020. The city of Sejong in South Korea wanted to install kiosks for self-driving shuttle buses in the city park.
While working on a kiosk UI design project, I had the opportunity to learn more about the accessibility of touch screen kiosk UI. My goal was to design a UI that was easily accessible to everyone. So, I referenced W3C, WCAG, and Austrian/German standard DIN-1450 to ensure UI element size, readability, and color contrast for an accessible kiosk design.

What I've learned
I gained a deep understanding of the importance of accessibility in kiosk UI design. Kiosks for the citizens of Sejong City must provide services that are accessible and easy to use for all users. In the process of determining the size of touch buttons, font size, and colors, considering the unique screen size and environment of a kiosk, I experienced and learned how Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) can be applied in designing kiosk UIs, distinct from website design.
