Accessibility is the term given to the level at which (generally) websites can be viewed and operated by as many people as possible. Factors that contribute to a highly accessible site are, well structured html that conforms to best practices, css based layouts and the over all aesthetic design. All of which contribute to how well the site performs for the visually impaired, people with low motor skills, and for those using assistive technologies such as screen readers.
