I'm open to any inclusive language which you all agree on. The point of
the tag was to help highlight bugs which impacted the usability of an
application by someone who was using assistive (or other adaptive)
technology to use an application/package/system. [So things like screen
readers, dyslexia fonts, braille ttys, predictive input devices, etc.
(definitely not an exclusive list of categories, of course).]

I'd like if it includes "accessibility" in the language (so someone can
figure out why it's called a11y), but I'm happy with any language that
are acceptable to advocates and the community affected by these issues.
