need some help re problem sites

Hi List, I work in post-secondary education supporting students who are blind or vision impaired and am blind myself. I am constantly faced with needing to use external (and sometimes internal) sites that are very poorly designed re access. For example, publishers of textbooks etc. I am not a techy so can't provide that type of assistance or advice but what I am seeking is a good basic document or website that I can pass on to the devs of these sites to assist them in at least doing some tweaking to make their sites more user friendly to all. Is there such a beast? I want to be able to email them and include the link or document to get them started.
I would love some help here if you know of anything because it drives me nuts and seriously slows down my efficiency in my job crawling through these messes with a screen reader.
