As of January 2021, the World Health Organization identified over one billion individuals living with disabilities, with more than 100 million facing significant challenges in daily functioning. Many of these disabilities impact access to information technologies, which, ironically, could offer crucial support to these individuals.
The internet plays a pivotal role in modern society, and ensuring its accessibility is vital for people worldwide, especially those with auditory, cognitive, physical, neurological, visual disabilities, or those facing accessibility challenges due to aging. Accessibility extends beyond disability, benefiting individuals experiencing situational barriers, such as using small-screen devices, low bandwidth situations, language barriers, or literacy challenges.
