The aim of barrier-free internet is to make websites perceptible and operable for every user. For example, visually impaired people rely on the ability to change font size or color contrast. Blind people understand the content of Internet pages using computers with voice output or Braille (braille) lines. The content of a website can only be fully reproduced by these devices if the website is designed to be barrier-free. For users with limited motor skills, navigation using the keyboard instead of the mouse can be crucial for usability.
Status of compatibility with the requirements
