Accessibility

The extent to which a contractor’s or employer’s facility is readily approachable and does not inhibit the mobility of individuals with disabilities, particularly such areas as the personnel office, worksite and public areas.

Beyond physical accessibility there are cognitive differences that must be factored for. Accessibility also applies to non-physical aspects. Processes must be clearly laid out and understandable for all involved. Using fonts that are easier to be read and interpreted will contribute to making the user experience more accesible for the entire workforce.

The use of assistive technologies are extremely useful for enabling people with disablilities to complete tasks set for them. Web developers must take into consideration the needs of all people. Thus through providing audio information such as screen readers or other facilities that meet international accessiblity standards, developers can create platforms that are inclusive for all.
