This site is designed and developed by Charmaine M. Taylor as part of an MSc dissertation at Glasgow Caledonian University, Computer Studies Department at Glasgow, Scotland.

The purpose of this site is to assist web designers and developers in producing a web site that will be accessible to all users, including those with sight and mobility impairments. It is being developed to provide web designers with a one-stop-search to provide information for the production of web sites that are accessible to everyone.

Numerous web sites that are trying to help web designers provide accessible web content are linked to this site in an attempt to make the search for such information an easier task.
