Welcome to Nic’s accessibility minute

The series is going to talk about accessibility. So maybe we should define it as a first step. And if you ask 10 different accessibility experts, you might get 12 different definitions. But it all comes down to more or less:

The inclusive practice of making websites and applications work for everybody regardless of ability or disability.

So it’s not just something we do for disabled people, even though disability is the primary motivator. It’s also about making sure it works for everyone.

And it’s about inclusion.

That’s it!
