The concept of whether a product, service, or space can be used by as broad an audience as possible, which differs from general usability by focusing on providing an equivalent user experience to people with disabilities. Factors that make up accessibility include visual, auditory, and mobility components, and the ability of a product, service, or space to interface or be used with assistive technology (such as a screen reader or mobility aids).
