There’s a quote by Tim Berners-Lee, Director of W3C and inventor of the World Wide Web, that says, “The power of the web is in its universality”.

Web accessibility seems like a tall order on paper, but it’s definitely much easier than it sounds.
In less than two months, four different federal judges have said "Yes" to website accessibility. These cases, from Florida and New York, are a wake-up call to every business in the United States that serves the public: If you have a website, make it accessible so everyone can use it, including disabled people.
