Further reading: books that I recommend

  1. Joe Clark: Building Accessible Websites. I tech-edited this book; it's excellent. Comprehensive but not overwhelming.
  2. Jim Thatcher and others: Constructing Accessible Web Sites. Less comprehensive than Joe's book, but goes into greater depth in the topics it covers. Gives screenshots of how various screen readers and alternative browsers interpret various tags and markup. Also has a chapter on the current state of legal accessibility requirements.
  3. Steve Krug: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability. Usability and accessibility overlap in many ways. Steve has lots of good advice about usable (and accessible) navigation.
  4. Owen Briggs, Steve Champeon, Eric Costello, Matthew Patterson: Cascading Style Sheets: Separating Content from Presentation. As we've seen throughout this series, CSS is an integral part of accessibility, because it allows you to "do the right thing" in your HTML markup (which assistive technologies care about) and still present your page the way you like in visual browsers.
  5. Eric Meyer: Eric Meyer on CSS: Mastering the Language of Web Design. There's also some free material on the book's companion web site.
