Description

The ability to access and benefit from some system or entity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility). In the UDL context, this term generally refers to access for people with disabilities, particularly compatibility with assistive technologies. It is also used more broadly in the sense that a goal of UDL is to make learning accessible to the widest range of people possible. Not to be confused with usability.
