When designing a website, making it user-friendly to the physically challenged is probably not the first thing that crosses your mind. Accessibility of a website stands for how easily it can be accessed by the ones with disabilities. Say, there could be screen readers for the visually challenged, or perhaps picture descriptions for the pictorial representations. Similarly, suitable features can be added to make the site more convenient for them, be their disability hearing impairment, color blindness, or anything similar.
