Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web.W3C Web Accessibility Initiative. (2005). What is Web Accessibility. Introduction to Web Accessibility. http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/accessibility.php

[It is] well known among web developers that websites that are accessible are also much more usable for everyone.Eyadat, M., & Lew, J. (2011). Web Accessibility Factor a Key Focus for Serving Students. Review of Business Research, 11(2), 80.

It just won't work to build a complete system and then, in the final stages of development, spread the interface over it like peanut butter.Lewis, C. & Rieman, J. (1994). Task-Centered User Interface Design: A Practical Introduction. http://hcibib.org/tcuid/

Accessibility often gets pigeon-holed as simply making sure there are no barriers to access for screen readers or other assistive technology, without regard to usability.Quesenbery, W. (2009). Usable Accessibility: Making Web Sites Work Well for People with Disabilities. UX Matters. http://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2009/02/usable-accessibility-making-web-sites-work-well-for-people-with-disabilities.php

Universal design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.Mace, R. (1998). Universal design in housing. Assistive Technology, 10(1), 21-28.

Whereas [universal design] is a design methodology (similar to user-centered design), [accessibility] is its most commonly associated metric.Maler, A. (2013). The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Universal Design. UX Booth http://www.uxbooth.com/articles/the-complete-beginners-guide-to-universal-design/
- Andrew Maler
It is important for designers to formulate and adhere to usable design processes and guidelines throughout the entire cycle of development so that the product or service is accessible and universally usable for all.Stephanidis, C. (2009). Universal access and design for all in the evolving information society. In C. Stephanidis (ed.), The Universal Access Handbook (1–11). Boca Raton: CRC Press.

Until people find themselves in a situation where they are disabled due to their surroundings, they cannot fully appreciate how the built and virtual environments can throw obstacles in their paths – and indeed, profoundly affect their quality of life.City of Calgary.
