Please consider these advices before using accessibility icons
There are a lot of accessibility icon sets out there. Many looking really fancy, but its not always clear what they really mean. But meaning is essential here. People with disabilities only rely on icons, if they can trust them. And they only trust them, if they know what they mean.
If you use such icons on a website, on site, etc. please make sure you know the icon and what it means. For instance, if you label a toilet fully accessible for wheelchairs, neither can the room have steps nor there is no space next to the toilet to park a wheelchair.
We recommend to use these icons in certain ways to help people understand what they actually mean. To help you determine, when to use an icon, you can have a look in the following table.
