the term accessibility is used in many contexts and means different things, so it is only a matter of which definition you use
using the definition defined by the SIG in the 2004 white paper:
Game Accessibility can be defined as the ability to play a game even when functioning under limiting conditions. Limiting conditions can be functional limitations, or disabilities — such as blindness, deafness, or mobility limitations.
the text says "Limiting conditions can be..." which does not exclude other factors than disabilities - such as things in the environment e.g. gray colors, small display etc.
