Getting Started With Accessibility

What Is Accessibility?

Accessibility is the degree to which a product, device, program, service, resource, or environment is available to a given user. Accessibility is strongly related to universal design which refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products, and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities.

What Is Accessible Technology?

Accessible technology is technology that has been designed in a way so that it can be accessed by all users. This includes electronic documents, websites, software, hardware, video, audio, and other technologies. People who interact with technology are extremely diverse. They have a wide variety of characteristics, and it cannot be assumed that they are all using a traditional monitor for output, or keyboard and mouse for input.
