Here is a link to w3c's guidelines on letting site owners know with
sample email... http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/responding/

Often site owners need education... smaller site owners often user
Site-building tools and don't know much about html or there is any
problems, even with larger sites their development staff doesn't know
about accessbility

>> 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.
