The internet is the most important tool in modern society. This form of technology provides a quick and easily accessible route to communication, business, social interactions, entertainment, shopping, and so much more between people all over the world on a daily basis.
In addition to what it already provides users, everyday there seems to be new internet based technology being developed. However, are they accessible to all users?

In the world there are multiple types of illnesses, diseases, and health issues that hinder those suffering from them in their activities.

Add that with the fact that most websites are designed and developed without having too much thought for those with vision issues, despite the user interface becoming a more widespread component of the sites design.
