Accessibility refers to the extent to which products, services and other benefits can be used by all. Accessible design or universal design describes the development of products with the goal of making them usable by the broadest possible range of people.[1] Accessibility is often discussed in regard to improving usability for people with disabilities, but can also improve access for all users.[2][3]

Pippa Stacey has written about accessibility and ME/CFS as a student[4] and then as a young working professional.[5][6]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.
