accessible web design.

Hi Laura, if you didn't know already, these are superb live resources in addition to books:


Books don't debate best practice like more dynamic sources so I'd be careful how they were used by students. That's not to say they aren't extremely useful though. Perhaps the WCAG would be the place to start along with case studies to demonstrate practical technique - contrary to the myth its pretty easy to read (and even easier with a tutor explaining as you go) http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/. There's also a working draft of the WCAG 2.0 too: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/. Supplementing that with judicious samples from the sites listed to flesh out the practice of accessible design based around the WCAG etc would top it off nicely.

The RNIB has good resources on web practice:
also a useful article on UK law:
