Accessibility is an important topic to consider when creating content for the web. The World Wide Web Consortium defines web accessibility as meaning that people with disabilities of any kind can perceive, understand, navigate, interact with and contribute to the web.
Since people access the internet in many different ways—through cell phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, or assistive technology such as screen readers—it is important to accommodate people who may otherwise have difficulty accessing and interacting with content on the web.
