If you are new to web accessibility, you may want to begin with the “Section 508 Universe Training” Here you can learn about Building and Buying Accessible Software, Designing Accessible Websites, Accessibility and Usability Concerns (Electronic Forms, Email), Buying Accessible Computers and other Electronic and Information Technologies.
For the Academic community, we recommend a free webinar provided for USG personnel called “Section 508 Compliance and Online Course Content”. This webinar provides an overview of Section 508 and discusses Accessible Course Design and Accessible Course Content (with a live demo for creating accessible Word and PDF documents). A detailed handout accompanies the webinar. The captioned recording is available on the USG iTunes channel located at http://itunes.usg.edu Select “Online Faculty Development Series 2011-2012” then select Video tab (the default setting opens a short Preview; the full webinar recording is available under the Video tab).
