   It says that HTML provides a markup language, and APIs, *for authoring  
   accessible pages*. Rather than being purely accessibility directed, it is  
   meant to enable making pages and applications - and in particular, making  
   pages and applications that are accessible.
   The markup and APIs are what HTML is made of, and that fills much of the  
   document.
   Markup such as lists, headings, basic forms, and so on all enable  
   authoring accessible pages.
   Markup such as ARIA, included in HTML, enables this for various dynamic  
   applications.
   APIs provide access to much of the underlying information, which also  
   makes it possible to produce accessible pages and applications.
   cheers
