For a building, reasonable adjustment is often adding ramps for
wheelchair access. For a web site, it can be adding capability to
allow users adjust absolute size text, use a higher contrast color
scheme, navigate menus using keyboards, etc.

It depends on the affected area. For example, if a reasonable
adjustment allows users to access an area otherwise inaccessible, then
such adjustment is a priority 1.
