Tech Accessibility means that everyone can use the exact same technology as anyone else-regardless of whether they can manipulate a mouse, how much vision they have, how many colors they can see, how much they can hear or how they process information.
Accessible technology is either directly accessible, whereby it is usable without additional assistive technology (AT), or it is compatible with AT. For example, a mobile smartphone with a built-in screen reader is directly accessible, whereas a website that can be navigated effectively by people with visual impairments using a screen reader is AT-compatible.
