Accessible or semantic code is code that utilizes elements for their intended purpose, such as using a heading <h> tag for a heading instead of a regular paragraph text <p> tag with styling applied to it. Using semantic HTML markup and writing code to be accessible not only makes development easier, but it provides a number of important benefits to your users, especially those that use assistive technology.
Writing Accessible Code
Writing accessible code is an essential development skill and a necessity for users accessing your digital content or application via many different devices, interfaces, and assistive technologies. Accessible code is easier to write, easier to understand, and enables the greatest amount of access to the information that you care about.
