This article is a broad discussion of the provision of Internet and World Wide Web access to persons with disabilities and strategies for its improvement. The author advocates the inclusion of multiple methods of information presentation: text, graphics, audio, and tactile, and argues that if all users are not provided easy ways to include these different forms of output, they will seldom be included, much to the detriment of users with disabilities. General topics discussed include: navigation with browsers; modifications to infrastructure; accessibility of tools.
