Start of main content

Accessibility indicates the ease with which something can be used, visited or accessed in general for all people, especially those who have disabilities.

To promote the accessibility use of certain facilities that help overcome obstacles or barriers to accessibility of the environment is made, getting these people perform the same action may be undertaken by people without any disability. These facilities are called technical aid.

There are millions of people with disabilities who can not use the web as usual. Currently, most sites have accessibility barriers, making it difficult or even impossible to use.

Web accessibility covers many types of disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, cognitive or neurological problems and benefits all people who use a website, including people without disabilities but due to certain circumstances, have difficulty access a website (for example, a slow connection, a low-resolution monitor, ...) and those who suffer some form of temporary disability (for example, a broken arm), and the elderly.

In addition to ensuring access to information for all people regardless of their limitations, the web accessibility also guarantees universal access from any device.
