Accessibility refers to designing products, services, devices, and environment so that people with disabilities are able to use them.
Assistive technology is a device that helps a person complete a task or tasks that would otherwise be impossible for them. This includes things such as screen readers, assistive listening devices (including hearing aids), and traffic lights that would allow colorblind people to understand the signals.
Accessibility refers to designing products, services, devices, and environments so that people with disabilities are able to use them. Accessibility can be thought of as the ability to access and use a system or object. It is focused on providing access for people with disabilities or helping enable access through the use of assistive technology.
In the United States, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 stays that new public and private businesses construction must be accessible. Already existing businesses must increase accessibility whenever they make renovations.
When designing things to be accesible and practicing accessible development, it is important to ensure both direct and indirect access. Direct access means a person can do something without assistance, and indirect access means that something will be compatible with a person’s assistive technology.
Accessibility is connected to universal design. Universal design is the design of products, structures, or environments to make them accessible to anyone, regardless of disability or any other factor. It is about making things accessible to everyone - whether they have a disability or not.
