What is Accessibility?
Accessible Web Pages are those which can be used correctly by the greatest possible number of people, independently of their physical, psychological or technological characteristics.
Why is it important to make the web pages accessible?
People, especially those with any kind of disability, may have difficulty in using Internet due to the many barriers that may be found on the web page or in the applications that are used: browsers, multi-media applications, screen readings, voice synthesizers, etc.
Some examples of the kind of problems that can be found by users when they visit a web page are:
- Images without the alternative of a text
- Absence of the alternative text on the image maps
- Incorrect use of the elements that structure a web page
- Sounds that lack sub-titles or images which are not described
- Absence of alternatives for users who have browsers that do not hold frames, scripts or applet.
- Tables which are incorrectly interpreted when read in lineal form
- Pages with a poor color contrast.
