Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the World Wide Web, once said:
"The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."
However, not all websites created are accessible. As a designer, you have the power and responsibility to make sure that everyone has access to what you create regardless of ability, context, or situation.
