'Web accessibility refers to the practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities and disabilities. When sites are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality.
The Web Support Team is commited to providing web-based information and services in an accessible manner to all users, including persons with disabilities. For your convenience, we have provided information on the Web accessibility standards created as part of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as well as various guidelines and resources for accessibility.
It is imperative that we get the help of all content editors and campus web developers to ensure that they are doing their part in creating content and sites that meet these standards.'

Really this amazing website, and has lots of interesting educational materials. It provides an array of resources designed to help every body to create accessible web contents, to tools helps the organization build its capacity to maintain electronic accessibility. This website as the logo says web accessibility for all, failure is not an option. It has many navigation features, like what is new, instructional resources that includes tutorials, learn by examples, capacity building, web standards, show case and many other features. The last thing I explored is section 508 guide lines.
Thank you again for the hard work and have a nice week end
