Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, said: “The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” The internet is definitely one of the best things that happened to people with disabilities. However, there are still many websites that are not accessible to those visitors because they are not designed or coded properly to be used effectively even with assistive technologies. This presentation will cover the basics of accessibility and explain why it benefits everyone, regardless of disabilities, and even website owners.
