About 15% of the world's population, or 1 billion people, live with a disability. With internet penetration steadily growing at double-digit annual rates, the inclusive practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities and disabilities is becoming increasingly important. Organizations, such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), have set guidelines on how to create accessible websites.
Governments across the world have taken notice of web accessibility. In Ontario, Canada, the Provincial Government has created the "Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act" (AODA), which includes accessibility for websites.
