    Guidelines The National Disability Authority has produced guidelines covering a broad range of areas including person-centred planning, public transport and universal design in the built environment.

Accessibility in the sense considered here refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments so as to be usable by people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design and practice of accessible development ensures both "direct access" (i.e. unassisted) and "indirect access" meaning compatibility with a person's assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).
