Accessibility

Accessibility is “the quality or condition of being accessible (in various senses),” and “access” refers to “to obtain, acquire; to get hold of” or “to gain admission to” (source: Oxford English Dictionary online). “Accessibility” in design speak often refers to design for people with disabilities (see Shawn Lawton Henry, et al. 2014). This workshop employs the term “accessibility” to refer to access to those folks as well as to people in different international contexts and/or who speak different languages, and to methods of open or non-proprietary design and sharing.
