Universal design

Universal design (UD) means "the design of products, environments, programs and services to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design." (UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), Article 2). UD, a design process rather than a description of products, encompasses accessibility, going beyond it to address the widest possible user base. UD does not exclude assistive technologies where needed, as they are part of the usage environment that must be taken into account.
