a wake-up call!
"Accessible web design means accessibility of content for all users and all devices. Today, the internet offers us a wealth of information in myriad areas. It connects people, but unfortunately, not all of them. Disabled people often fail due to barriers that make it difficult or, in some cases, impossible for them to access the information available. This is due, on the one hand, to the possible limitations of the people themselves and, on the other hand, to the technology in end devices they use."
Accessible webdesign means accessibility of content for all user and all devices.

Websites for everyone
Every move toward an accessible website is a step forward – for you, your visitors, and our society. At first glance, accessibility appears to be a straightforward task. However, anyone who examines this issue for any length of time will quickly find that it's not as straightforward as it first appears. This is due mainly to the high number of different disabilities and the vast differences in the technological equipment of the various user groups. However, it is still worthwhile to pursue.
Accessible websites typically offer higher usability and technical stability. Google also benefits from using the semantic coding that organises your content. Accessible websites benefit everyone. You and I both.
