What is accessibility?

Web accessibility indicates the ability to access the web and its content by the greatest number of people, regardless of their navigation context or physical disability.
By “navigation context” we mean devices, browsers, Internet connection speed, preferences, browser or computer configuration, environmental conditions, etc.
