Accessibility refers to the design and provision of products, services, and environments in a way that is inclusive and enables disabled people to fully participate and engage.
Accessibility can involve a range of measures, such as providing physical accessibility, such as ramps and elevators, or providing accommodations, such as visual or audio aids, to support disabled people.
Accessibility can also involve the creation of policies and practices that are inclusive and consider the needs of people with disabilities.
Ensuring accessibility is an important aspect of social justice, as it helps to create a more inclusive and equitable society for all.
