I'm in the midst of reading Norman Coombs Making Online Teaching Accessible: Inclusive Course Design for Students with Disabilities (http://www.amazon.com/Making-Online-Teaching-Accessible-Disabilities/dp/0470499044) Jossey-Bass; 1 edition (October 12, 2010) and HIGHLY recommend it.

Constantly finding bits and pieces to share with colleagues involved in various aspects of accessible technology - online education, video files, documents and slideshows, etc.

I noticed the book, Web Accessibility, was the text book for the last online course in the list. I checked it out from the library, but it is so large like most computer books are that I was thinking of just buying a copy.

Is there a better book? I just wondered as it is sort of old for a computer related book.

The full title, author and link to Amazon are below.
