Re: Good Examples of Accessible Web Applications in the Wild

I'd pretty much go with the Wikipedia
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_application>definition of a Web

*In computing, a web application or web app is a client–server software
application which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser.*

As opposed to a "Web Site":

*A website, also written as web site, is a collection of related web pages,
including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain
name, and published on at least one web server. *

And I'd love to see good examples of both myself

It's easy to find bad examples of accessible pages/applications (even some
government websites around are still not properly accessible)
But really good ones (other than the obvious like webaim or deque) are much
harder to find
