Yes - "just access" would be fine for entering the bathroom or buying a
ticket. If it took you 4 times longer it would be inconvenient but not a
barrier. And a lot more convenient than having to carry AT around with you
to get in to a bathroom with a keypad.
However, for a workstation - you might have to optimize the interface to get
the efficiency you need to work competitively.
