What is accessibility?

Accessibility refers to the capability of a website to cater to individuals with varying abilities and disabilities, across a spectrum of digital devices.

The ability or disability of a person significantly influences how they perceive information and navigate through website pages. A website earns the label of "accessible" only when it accommodates all users, including the elderly and those with disabilities.

Browsers come equipped with numerous features that enhance accessibility for all users, including those with low vision, no vision, or limited keyboard/mouse functionality. Modern browsers support tools like screen readers and magnifiers, providing individuals with low vision access to features such as full-page zoom, high-contrast color options, and various extensions.
