Welcome to A Beginner's Guide to Web Accessibility. Over the course we'll be looking at web accessibility, what it is, why it matters and what you can do to start making your sites more accessible. This is a great course for anyone interested in or already involved in the web. That includes designers, developers, project managers, and CEOs. We'll review some important terms and organizations involved to get a better idea of the laws behind web accessibility as well as what the future looks like in this area. In chapter 1 we'll learn about different disabilities, how they apply to the web, and how users with those particular disabilities might navigate the web. We'll also take a look at what it means to conform to accessible standards.
