Amit’s Answer

Web accessibility encompasses a vast array of things to test for. The basic premise is that your website is accessible for everyone to use and is agnostic of client side difficulties. Examples of things to test for when ensuring web accessibility are ensuring all browsers work (Normally you just have to test Internet Explorer/Chrome/Firefox), checking to make sure alternate text is available on pictures/images/videos, checking to see if your website is compatible with screen readers for low vision users, and just making sure all buttons/dropdowns/features are working correctly. Testing for web accessibility is integral because what is the point of building an amazing application if no one can access it?

In simple terms, Web accessibility means that everyone can use websites, tools and technologies, including people with disabilities.
More specifically, helping them to perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web.

For a real-life example, check out how Instagram and Facebook has implemented accessibility:

Web accessibility in many cases means the capability to access the World Wide Web from a work computer. In many companies now this is limited due to lack of work production based on people misusing their time and using social networks like Facebook while at work. So in the world of pharmacy several large pharmacy companies restrict access or completely deny access to the web from work computers.
