Why the Obvius?
The word "Obvius" explained
Disability Access Accredited Consultant Daniel Bedwell BA (Hons)
explains The OBVIUS
About everyday we are asked “Why have you missed the O out
of Obvious?” or even worse
“Don’t you guys know how to spell?”
So to keep past and future questioners informed here is the reason we chose OBVIUS
ACCESS as our Australian Business Name for our Accredited Disability Access Consultancy.
OBVIUS is derived from the Latin Language which literally when
translated means “Being on the Way” or “Accessible” Derived from the use of “Ob”
before and “Via” way.
Therefore looking beyond the Obvious we decided upon Obvius as it is from the original Roman derivation of Accessible.
We decided upon Access for the other word as when you combined the two it
could have become Accessible Access or as we translated the Latin it became “OBVIUS ACCESS”
Hope that explains the origins our title. We have more on our web-site please visit
