Web Accessibility

Technical accessibility doesn't guarantee usable accessibility

When developers focus on technical aspects of web accessibility they don’t necessarily achieve usable accessibility. While their websites pass technical accessibility tests, they are absolutely inaccessible for people with cognitive disabilities. That does not really help the client nor does it help the disabled.
