How can standards help us design accessible websites?

In society, people with disabilities depend on web standards for accessible websites. Web accessibility means that a website can be used as effectively by people with disabilities as by those without disabilities. Some common disabilities people may face could be:

  • Color Blind
  • Blind
  • Hearing
  • Phyiscal
Standards can help us create websites that these people would be able to use easier. For example, we can design websites to be accessible to text to speech tools or label certain colors on the screen.
