The web accessibility makes web content and web applications more accessible for people with disabilities. It especially helps in dynamic content change and development of advanced user interface controls with AJAX, HTML,JavaScript, and related technologies.

Switch provides built-in compliance with WAI-ARIA specifications. WAI-ARIA support is achieved through the attributes like aria-checked and aria-disabled. It helps the people with disabilities by providing information about the widget for assistive technology in the screen readers, such as screen readers.
