According to the W3C, Web Accessibility means ensuring that everyone, including people with disabilities, can use the Web. More specifically, it means enabling people with disabilities to understand, understand, navigate, interact with and contribute to the Web. Accessible web benefits everyone, including elderly people, people with limited ability to use the web, those with a slower connection, and more.
We use W3C, recommendations, which can be found here, to make the content on our website accessible.
