It is essential to focus on universal design in agile software development to ensure that the software developed is usable by as many people as possible. This work studies how members of agile teams regard universal design, how the team is organized to focus on universal design, and how the team practices universal design. We have questioned 89 members of agile software projects including developers, tester, designers and project leaders. We present a detailed breakdown of the results based on roles, domains, experience and other factors that explain the differences and similarities among teams. Our findings show that there is a significant difference between what members think, what management think and what members actually do to ensure universal design.
