What Is Accessible Web Design?
Put simply, web accessibility is about designing a site to ensure that its content is available to the maximum number of visitors, including people with disabilities, regardless of the technology they are using.
Accessible sites prioritise content, structure and ease of navigation over frivolous aspects of design; however that doesn't mean they can't look great and utilise the latest technologies.
Accessibility and usability are not the same thing; however, they do overlap in many areas, and web developers who design with accessibility in mind are often able to improve their web site for all users.
