“ADA defines disability in three factors: a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of an individual.” The definition of disability has been easily misused because of the word “impairment” is such a broad term. Disability is the best word to describe the condition of the user in the design because a person with a disability has limitation that need to be accommodating. The designer should be aware of the accommodation to produce a good design for everyone to use.
