How to make websites accessible for people with disabilities
Most services, products and information are now available on the Internet through websites.
The Internet can play an important role in empowering people with disabilities. However, if the websites are not accessible, they are of no use.
Here are some basic tips to make a website accessible.

Zoom option or screen magnification software can also make it possible to make the fonts bigger for users with low vision.
Voiceover features can tell website users about the content. It also makes navigating the website easier.
Head-tracking software can help move the pointer with head movements.
