Good point. How effective do you find Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates?

Such a list would be impractical -- if not impossible -- to create and maintain. There are an ever-growing number of software products, and each revision might improve or detract from their level of keyboard accessibility.

However, perhaps you can focus the question further. Are you looking for a list of major office suite products (e.g. Microsoft Office, Libre Office, etc.) which are relatively good at keyboard accessibility? Social networking products? Graphic design products? Within a certain sphere, you might be able to find a better resource (with the understanding that it would likely be out of date as soon as it was created).
