What Is Accessibility?

Accessibility focuses on making products, services, programs, and environments available and usable for everyone. According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 6 people have a disability, which means there are millions of people who are unable to access your content if it is not accessible. However, adjustments made to increase accessibility almost always benefit everyone, whether they experience disability or not. 

For example, curb cuts were installed to make public sidewalks accessible for wheelchair users. While the change was initially for them, it has also been beneficial for many other reasons. Curb cuts help people using bicycles, baby strollers, skateboards, dollies, and more!
