Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, they can perceive, understand, navigate and interact with the Web, and they can contribute on the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people whose abilities change with age.
Web accessibility includes all the disabilities that affect access to the Web, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive and neurological disabilities.
