What is accessibility?

Millions of people in the UK and around the world have disabilities that make it hard to use badly produced websites. People who are blind, for instance, use screen readers to listen to a web page. They sometimes find it impossible to use image-heavy websites, unless a text-only alternative is provided for them.In most countries, including the UK, there are now laws that make it illegal to discriminate against disabled people, and that includes producing websites they can’t access. Accessibility¬†is the practice of making websites as usable as possible for people with disabilities.
