This guide will go over mobile accessibility, including researching assistive technology, accessible building design and mobility aids.
The accessibility goal of all services and places should be to provide equitable, rather than equal access to services and places.
An example of equal access to a building would be that an abled-bodied person can enter a building which has stairs to its main entrance. A person who uses a wheelchair can also enter the building, but must enter the building through a back entrance that has a ramp.
An example of equitable access would be for all of the entrances in the building to have both stairs and a ramp.
