Why your website needs to be accessible?
Web accessibility is not a "nice to have" feature anymore. It is considered a standard requirement for websites, next to performance and SEO. Here are some facts you may not know:

A11y doesn't just apply to disabilities. Temporary or circumstantial events, for example, those with weak internet connections, or those caring for children can benefit from a11y.
