TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Also, check out Cast <http://www.cast.org> 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.
Another good site for some links is AIR-Austin Web site <http://www.knowbility.org/AIR-Austin/index.html>. 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 <http://www-3.ibm.com/able/hpr.html> and try it out with the monitor turned off.

Subject: RE: Section 508
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.
