Also, check out Cast <> and download Bobby from their site. Bobby may not be a perfect compliance tester, but it will give you a good start and will probably point out a few things you might otherwise overlook.

You might also want to check out the HTML Writers Guild's accessibility mailing list, Aware Techniques <>.

Another good site for some links is AIR-Austin Web site <>. It's primarily for a local event where groups compete by building accessible Web sites for non-profit organizations in 8-hours, but the site also has a resources section.

If you would like to get a better picture of sightless Internet access, download the trial of IBM's Home Page Reader <> and try it out with the monitor turned off.

This may not be what you want to hear, but I doubt you really need training
per se on Section 508. It's just not that complicated, assuming you have a
good working knowledge of HTML. You could read the Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines on the W3C site and then read Section 508 itself in less than
half a day.

Announcing new options for IPCC 01, October 24-27 in Santa Fe,
New Mexico: attend the entire event or select a single day.
