- What is Web Accessibilty?
In short, making a website available for everyone. Regardless of his physical abilites and disabilits.
- What are the main disability key areas?
Visual, hearing, mobility and cognition.
- Why do I need to care to 1 person out of 100?
We all need an accessible web, not only people with disabilites. Just imagine yourself in the shoes of this person. Would you be happy if you open a web page and can't navigate between the navigation items for example? No.
- Would accessibility need more development time?
If you want to build custom components like menus for example, then you will need to write more code and as a result you will need more time. But most of the time, if you sticked to HTML semantics, you will save yourself a lot of effort and get an accessible web page for free.
