Overview

Web Accessibility, simply put, is the creation of sites and applications that can be fully experienced by the broadest number of users. That includes disabled users, who typically visit the sites we create with the help of assistive technologies such as screen readers.

Importance

For the most basic, text-driven web experiences, these technologies work well, and disabled users greatly benefit. However, the Web has exploded well beyond the realm of text-based experiences in the last decade, and assistive technologies have struggled to keep up.

The good news is that there is something we, as web developers, can do to easily bridge the gap to those assistive technologies, which enables the accessibility tools to better aid disabled users as they interact with the sites we create. By providing things like full keyboard support, high-contrast visual elements, text-based equivalents of non-text elements and by adhering to standards like WAI-ARIA, WCAG 2.0, and Section 508, we have the tools we need to create accessible and rich Internet applications.
