What is Web Accessibility?

"Web accessibility means creating digital resources on the web that everyone can use. This involves creating a web that is accessible to people with disabilities that may affect how they use the Web, including but not limited to visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities. An accessible web benefits web users and developers regardless of whether or not they have disabilities. An accessible web gives people the flexibility to access digital materials in whatever way they need to." - Web Accessibility Toolkit
