Accessibility

What is accessibility? Physical and digital environments are only accessible when individuals with disabilities are included and afforded equal opportunity to participate and engage. The Office of Civil Rights defines accessibility as follows:

'Accessible' means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use.
