      Dose of Inspiration: Quotes About Accessibility

      Accessibility benefits everyone. It is not just a solution for people with disabilities or limitations, it is a solution that can make life easier and better for everyone. 

      Think of how parents with a stroller will benefit when there are more ramps on public transport hubs. More visual learners will reach their potential faster with closed captioning, compared to exclusively audio methods. Building accessibility into technology makes it more user-friendly for everyone. 

      Accessibility is not an optional add-on or an extra expense. We should be designing with accessibility in mind- because we all want to be a part of a more inclusive world, where everyone’s potential can be reached. 

      AXSChat, an open online community with the aim of creating an inclusive world, believes that accessibility is for everyone.

      “We should celebrate neurodiversity – the world would be poorer and life duller if we were all the same.”―Neil Milliken

      “Let’s stop ‘tolerating’ or ‘accepting’ difference, as if we’re so much better for not being different in the first place. Instead, let’s celebrate difference, because in this world it takes a lot of guts to be different.”― Kate Bornstein

      “It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability. One has to get on with life and I haven’t done badly. People won’t have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.” Steven Hawking

      “Who said we want to conform to the norm?  Celebrate & embrace our differences.” ― Neil Milliken

      Disabilities and human potential

      “The only disability is when people cannot see human potential.”― Debra Ruh

      “If disabled people were truly heard, an explosion of knowledge of the human body and psyche would take place.”― Susan Wendell

      Everyone benefits from accessibility

      “When speaking of disabilities, the blind and their needs are most often used as an example. It is deceivingly simplistic since accessibility is something most of the population can benefit from.” ― Marcus Österberg

      “The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” – Tim Berners-Lee

      Creating accessibility as a human duty

      “Accessibility is not a feature, it is a social trend.” ― Antonio Santos

      “We need to make every single thing accessible to every single person with a disability.”― Stevie Wonder
