Part: VII Appendixes > Accessibility Standards

Accessibility Standards

The way you design a Web site determines, to a very large extent, who is able to access that site. If you're concerned only about those with the latest version of your favorite browser and the fastest hardware and connection, there's no guarantee that you'll make a Web site that can be used by anyone who falls outside of those parameters.

There's a very large group of users who tend to fall outside of nearly everyone's target audience when developers design for the Web—users with disabilities. If you haven't thought about disabled Web users before, that's okay—don't beat yourself up for it. It's hard to imagine some of the problems faced by disabled computer users unless you've experienced them yourself, usually through observation.
