What does accessibility mean?
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.
Web accessibility encompasses all disabilities that affect access to the Web, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities.
A site is w3c valid if it meets the standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (w3c), including:
- w3c technologies include "built-in" accessibility features.
- w3c specifications undergo early review to ensure that accessibility issues are considered during the design phase.
- w3c specifications are developed in an open, industry consensus process.
