Film about accessibility for disabled people in public buildings and places HuntleyFilmArchives. “Film about accessibility for disabled people in public buildings and places – Film 31191”. Online video clip. Youtube. Youtube, 27 March 2013. Web. 23 February 2016. I chose this source because it is closely related to my fifth and sixth sources by it including the main topic of wheelchair accessibility. It points out the problems for people with disabilities that are created by the built environment not being accommodating. One specific example of issues in the built environment is the lack of lowered curbs for wheelchairs which makes it harder for people in wheelchairs to maneuver. It also explicitly says how built environments can be improved to help people with disabilities by adding smooth ramps where there are also steps. Another specific example of built environment issues given in the video is how doors need to be wide enough for wheelchairs to get through. The last example in the video that I find noteworthy is the handicap bathrooms made specifically so people in wheelchairs are able to use them. This video shows what simple things can be done to the built environment to provide easier access to those with disabilities, specifically in wheelchairs. The source’s only weakness is that it is not current information. Even with it being outdated, it makes several good points about how the built environment can be made more easily...
