Accessibility

Accessibility is the degree to which that Web site is usable, traditionally this is considered in the context of web browsers and people with disabilities such as visually impaired people using screen readers, who therefore cannot take advantage of visual or graphical cues, colour blind people, who cannot distinguish between page elements of different colours but the same intensity, or people who are physically impaired, who perhaps cannot easily manipulate a mouse to click on small areas. In recent years, with a greater focus on web standards and multiple browsing devices, the term has taken on a slightly wider meaning and is now usually considered in the wider context of useability - accessibility is an issue for all users, not just those normally considered disabled, and outside just the standard web browser. For example, use of small fonts can make large blocks of text difficult to read even for those with normal eyesight, and users today are far more likely to be accessing a website using their PDA or phone or even TV.
