Due to the overwhelming number of resources previously listed on this page, the list has been broken down into the subpages/categories below. Note that although some resources have been organized by those who might be more likely to use them (designers/users vs. developers), I have tried to minimize the duplication of links on multiple pages, so resources listed on the pages organized by user group may be valuable to everyone.
- Resources for Designers/Users (Instructors and Other Content Creators)
- Resources for Developers
- Information about Assistive Technology
- Accessibility Testing Tools
