As access consultants we look at how diverse people use space with ease and identify potential barriers to access. We believe that everyone should benefit from an accessible environment be it a parent using a pram, a tourist with a roller luggage, a visually-impaired person, your grandparents or a paramedic using a stretcher bed.
Accessibility refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people who experience disabilities. The concept of accessible design and practice of accessible development ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).
