I was recently contacted by a gentleman with a disability who is 
interested in learning about Universal Design in general and web 
accessibility in particular with a view to working from home in this area. 
 He has a technical background in this area in manufacturing engineering 
and materials management.  As a first port of call I would recommend the 
following resources:
http://diveintoaccessibility.org/ by Mark Pilgrim - a good first tutorial 
to read from beginning to end
http://webaim.org - lots of good tutorials and technical advice.

Guidelines and legislation
http://www.w3.org/WAI/ - WAI Homepage
http://accessIT.nda.ie - the Irish accessibility gudielines

Does anyone on the list know of any other good online course, tutorial or 
introduction to web accessibility and/or Universal Design that may be of 
interest to this person?
