Last year, I went to the 2 Days' seminar about "CSS/XHTML" at UP Diliman. That time I don't have much knowledge about web designing, then my manager decide to get me one slot to that seminar.

Back to my topic, What is Web Accessibility?

Web Accessibility simply means the practice of making your website accessible to anyone using the world wide web (internet).

How do I know this? its simple, the web accessibility is included in the topic on my 2 Days seminar.

But why we need to know the web accessibility? maybe you wonder why we need to know this, thou we can easily access the internet, Right?

I think you forgot the reality, The fact is even those people with a physical disabilities they do access internet, Yes! They can.

How do they access your website? There are many ways by which technologies called "assistive devices", which greatly assist access to web content.

This are the following example of that technology;

1. Speech recognition software
2. Screen magnification software
3. Keyboard overlays
4. Screen reader software
5. Translation software
6. Braile Printers

These special assistive devices require websites that support their specifications. For more information you need please visit "PWAG" Philippine Web Accessibility Group.
