The word accessibility is used to describe whether something can be used by everyone, regardless of ability. Digital accessibility is referring to websites and apps ensuring that people with disabilities (permanent, temporary or situational) find them easy to use. 

At least 15% of the world’s population – one billion people – have a recognised disability. There are many ways in which a person’s disability may affect the way they perceive information online, and how they navigate within pages.
