Why should we make our site Web Accessible?

 Most web designers may think why bother going through the pain of making the website accessible? 

 There are two main reasons for making our web content accessible

1) It is the law that federal agencies should  have information technology that is accessible to persons with disabilities.  Since University of Texas at Arlington is a State agency we need to make all our web content accessible.

2) We will be able to reach a wider audience if we make the site web accessible.  We want students with disabilities to be able to take our online courses.
