    It's an environmental term. Originally, it meant a house that was built in a way that was convenient for the wheel chair users. For instance, eliminating uneven floor levels, widening the hallways, etc. When you say "a barrier-free society," it means that a city is built in a way that is convenient for all disabled people including blind people and the elderly. google "barrier-free environments" and "disabled"

    It is like "accessibility". especially accessibility in a building.
