Inclusive design log - transport (draft for feedback)

The Inclusive Design Log is a PowerPoint file that has been created to assist implementing the process for inclusive transport service design described within this section.

It contains blank templates that you can use to store the outputs from each of the activities within the Inclusive Design Wheel for transport services. The first slide is a visual table of contents that you can use to navigate to each of the subsequent slide that contains your project-related content.

The Inclusive Design Log also contains worked examples for each of the activities, which are based on the DIGNITY pilot projects.

Further instructions on using this log are provided further down this page.

Navigating between slides

The screenshot below shows the PROJECT BOARD, which is a visual and navigable summary of all your content for the project.

The project board makes extensive use of slide zooms, which is a new kind of navigation feature introduced in PowerPoint 365, and 2019 onwards.

A slide zoom is a thumbnail picture of a slide, which automatically updates itself whenever the corresponding slides are updated.

Furthermore, you can navigate to the corresponding slide by right clicking on the thumbnail and choosing go to slide, as shown in the screenshot below.

Once you have navigated to a slide, you can get back by right clicking on the thumbnail of the project board (in the top left-hand corner) and then choosing go to slide, as shown below.

If you are in presenter mode, then all of the navigations can be performed by just left clicking on the objects.

The project board also contains various templates that you might like to use for creating stakeholder maps, as shown in the screenshot below

Creating new slides for your project

To create a new slide for additional project content, simply duplicate one of the existing slides, and delete everything except for the title banner and the thumbnail of the project board.

To add your new slide to the project board, click the ‘Insert’ tab in the Ribbon, and then ‘Zoom’ and then ‘Slide zoom’, as shown in the screenshot below

Then, choose the slide(s) that you want to insert thumbnails for, and then click ‘Insert’.

Once you have added the thumbnail, you might like to change its outline colour and line thickness to match the other thumbnails. You can do this by selecting the thumbnail, then choosing the ‘Format’ tab all in the Ribbon and then click on ‘Zoom border’, change the colour to Black and the line weight to 1

The next slide is the EXAMPLES BOARD, which shows examples for the different activities.

Viewing the worked examples

Immediately after the project board, the next slide is called the examples board, and it shows examples for all of the activities within the wheel.

Similar to the project board, all of the thumbnails on the examples board are slide zooms, so you can navigate to the corresponding slide by right clicking on the thumbnail and choosing go to slide.

For each of the examples that are given, you can get back to the examples board by holding down CTRL and then clicking on the home icon in the top left-hand corner.

Viewing guidance for each activity

Each slide in the log has a help icon in the bottom left-hand corner. WINDOWS users can hold down CTRL and click on this icon to launch your web browser and display the guidance for the corresponding activity (from this section of the Inclusive Design Toolkit website).

To achieve the same effect, MAC users must first enter slideshow mode, and then left click on the help icon.

Version history

Version 1 of the Inclusive Design Log was distributed to the pilot partners of the DIGNITY project. The feedback obtained during these projects was used to improve the log, leading to version 2 of the log, which was launched in December 2022 to coincide with the end of the DIGNITY project.

Version 2.1 was a minor update that improved the data presented on ‘estimate exclusion’ to include data from both the German and Italian surveys. The visual clarity of the example slide on digital personas was also improved. Navigation back to the project board was changed to use slide zooms rather than a hyperlinked home icon, because hyperlinked objects are not supported in the MAC version of PowerPoint.
