When it comes to content delivery, accessibility has become an important and desirable goal. The technologies and guidelines that improve access to materials for people with visual or hearing impairments, limited mobility, perceptual and cognitive differences, or who face other barriers to reading printed materials is also tremendously useful to other users. For example, the closed captions in a video, the read aloud feature in eBooks, the image descriptions which helps the user to access the same information in an alternate way and is understandable.
