Accessible: Refers to the concept that people with disabilities are able, including with the help of assistive technologies, to access and use a product or system,. For example, an “accessible” website may be designed so that the text can be enlarged by the user, rather than having a fixed font size, or may be designed so that it can be interpreted and “read aloud” by screen reader software used by individuals who are blind or have low vision.
