Voting with stickers
Accomodate participants who are not able to:
If the participants can not see they can not place a sticker physically (unless the concepts are communicated with braille (tactile dots) which is how many blind people feel their way) they could just speak out loud what they would vote for.
if the participants can not control movement and can therefore not place a sticker, the participant could tell where he/she thinks it should be placed and the facilitator or a helper could place it as it would still be nice with the visual output.

Step by Step
|1||Explain that it is time to narrow down the solution space by voting on the concept proposals in accordance to some criteria.||5||Ask the participants to vote for the concept in regards to another criteria and so on (5 min per criteria).|
|2||Make sure that all concept proposals are understood by the participants and that they are available to look at while voting.||6||Give the participant different types of stickers for each criteria e.g. most intuitive could be a green sticker, second criteria blue and so on.|
|3||You as a facilitator might have some criteria that you would like the final solution to live up to. Use these as guidindlies for voting and make the participants vote for one criteria at a time:||7||Provide an overview for the participants of the final result (5 min).|
|4||Ask your participants to vote for the concept that is e.g. most intuitive (5 min).|
When doing this method you should consider
Ask the participants to vote for their favorite besides voting for the predefined criteria.
It can be a good idea to define criteria together with the participants, as they would feel more engaged and taken serious.
If there is time, ask the participants to elaborate why they placed their sticker as they did after each round of voting.
If the participants are blind and therefore have to remember how each concept proposal is it will be beneficial to have a limited number of concepts for them to vote between. The more concepts they have to remember the higher the risk is for them to mix them up.
