Eliminating access barriers in Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) benefits all people, not only persons with a disability. For example, providing captioned videos can help students who possess differing learning styles and English as a Second Language (ESL) learners. Providing fully accessible, tagged PDF and digital files can help students who want to best utilize mobile and computer-based solutions (e.g. give ability to annotate, highlight digital content, generate study guides.)

Also, the cost to provide accommodations for students, faculty, staff, or the general public often can be reduced or even eliminated by considering accessibility considerations at the time of purchase.
