WAI: Strategies, guidelines, resources to make the Web accessible to people with disabilities

Finding Your WAI ("way")
to New Web Accessibility Resources

NOTE: This is an old draft. The published page is at

Page Contents

Presentations you can copy, business case resources, what to do when you come across an inaccessible website, and much much more are available on the WAI website for managers, policy makers, presenters, developers, designers, and people with disabilities.

Whether you already use WAI resources or you're new to web accessibility, we encourage you to look around and find more information that is useful to you. This page explains strategies for finding what you're looking for on the WAI website. (A separate page provides Help with the WAI Web Site, such as navigating with headings.)

If you don't find what you're looking for or have any suggestions on what you do find, please let us know by sending e-mail to:

New Resources

We think you'll find some documents that you didn't even know existed on the WAI website. Some of them are in Draft stage as we gather more feedback. For example, here are just a few:

To find more new and developing resources, see:

Look through the Website Navigation

Click through the website navigation. In most visual browsers the navigation is in the light blue box on the left of most pages. Screen reader users and those without CSS can find the navigation under "Site Navigation" heading level two.

When you click on a navigation topic (Introducing Accessibility, Guidelines & Techniques,
Managing Accessibility, etc.) you get a page that briefly explains the documents that are listed under that navigation topic.

Use the Site Map

Go to the WAI Site Map. Use the Find-on-page functionality to look for a specific word.

Find is often under the "Edit" menu, and the shortcut key for it is often Ctrl+F. Some browsers pop up a Find dialog box. Others add a strip at the top or bottom of the browser where you enter the words to find.

The WAI Site Map has the title of all the main pages. Think about what word or phrase might be in the title of the web page that has the information you are looking for.

Standard Search

We do not have an optimized general search. The information in Searching the WAI Web Site might help some.
