"Questions: why is it important that the web is accessible to people with disabilities? In short, why should we care? Then we can ask, in what ways is the internet inaccessible? What are some currently available technology to make computer and internet usage easier? What does accessibility even mean? Also, when we say people with disabilities, who do we include?
