Accessibility

Accessibility is how easily different users can use the site and browse it's content.

There are many people with disabilities that are unable to view sites as normal people are, such as the blind, visually impared and physically disabled people, most of which require special software to navigate or 'read' the site aloud.

Without catering for these people a site will isolate these users, and in the case of governement and large corporations or Ecommerce sites it is illegal not to cater for these users.
