This is an extremely comprehensive website. They posted an article entitled "Websites 'failing' disabled users" (BBC) that I found particularly interesting - few look at exactly how many are failing and who are hit the hardest. Here's the direct link to the article:

Hi Branka, 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 Yours truly, Ali Abueisa
