Specific people with expertise would be very helpful.
For example many don't realise wheel chair accessible is more than ramps
and elevators.
When I was briefly in a wheel chair I had problems with inadequate turning
room, fast closing elevator doors, elevator door sensors too high and
narrow doorways that required the perfect angle and dragging myself by the
door frame to get through.
I would not be surprised if there was more to other types of accessibility
than meets the untrained eye.
