What is website accessibility?

Website accessibility is all about making your web content and digital services accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of disabilities. Remember, disabilities can be long or short-term, and involve vision, auditory, or physical impairments, such as blindness or poor dexterity. It’s important to make sure your website is accessible across the entire disability spectrum.
