Accessible Route AUDIT

People with disabilities frequently encounter obstacles when they attempt to get from point A to point B. Do you have a particular walkway or route on campus that you know has caused a problem for someone with a disability? Feel free to try out this AUDIT to see how universally desgned the route is. What is the impact of special events parking on an accessible route? This AUDIT has guidelines when detours are necessary.

This section has covered all features of disabilities for accessible route. It has even considered the surface firmness and stability, but one drawback is that it doesn't give a value for co-efficient of friction. Co-efficient of friction for normal surfaces is 0.3. So this leaves a doubt if we have to assume 0.3.Except this all other features were really excellent, including the spaces, clearances, snow factor, height and width of accessible route etc.

Accessibility and Usability of routs are well covered in this section. accessibility and usability of routes for people with Mobility and visual impairments are discussed in details, but there are not sufficient information for accessibility and usability of routes for people with cognitive disability.

This is a great resource! In terms of content, it addresses accessibility of routes and paths in consideration of those with a variety of mobility impairments, those who use service dogs, those who are blind and others. It is important to be inclusive of a variety of different disabilities when creating such a resource in order to be one step closer to universal design. In terms of completing the evaluation, the AUDIT itself is also universally designed. It is paired with an item by item break down of explanations and examples of each scoring item, which makes it easy for anyone to use - even those who don't have a background in accessibility or may be cognitively impaired. Additionally, it has great usability within the Excel worksheet and is short, which again makes it easy and less intimidating for anyone to use.

One of the myths of web accessibility is that accessibility is only about blind and disabled users. Accessibility is actually about everyone being able to access your website, both disabled and non-disabled, regardless of the browsing technology they're using.
