- WebAim (Web Accessibility In Mind), an initiative of the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State, has an excellent site with resources and tutorials, a training CD . it also has a blog and discussion boards.
- The Access Board: a government agency concerned with many aspects of accessible design. It sets, updates, and presents the 508 accessibility standards for public websites.
