Does anyone have a short list of accessible web applications that are publically available. I am working with a new development team here at HHS and they would like to see some good examples. I have plenty of bad ones...

Can you explain what you mean by "web applications"?

The word "application" is a loaded term in web technologies.

I'd pretty much go with the Wikipedia
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_application>definition of a Web
Application:

*In computing, a web application or web app is a client–server software
application which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser.*


As opposed to a "Web Site":

*A website, also written as web site, is a collection of related web pages,
including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain
name, and published on at least one web server. *


And I'd love to see good examples of both myself

It's easy to find bad examples of accessible pages/applications (even some
government websites around are still not properly accessible)
But really good ones (other than the obvious like webaim or deque) are much
harder to find

A few possible things that would meet my need for an example might be:

An accessible event scheduling site where both the invitations and the scheduling side were accessible.

An accessible survey generation site where the process to build, take and analyze survey data were all accessible.

An accessible shopping site would probably also work

Thanks, that's why I asked. Often wen engineers hear web application they think of putting role="application" on the page body for this type of definition, which should never be done.

Mike's needs appear to be more specific such as a commercial shopping portal and the like, which I don't have an example of at the moment, but yours seems to be more general regarding a collection of provably accessible dynamic widgets, which you can see a collection of here if this is of help to you.
http://whatsock.com/bootstrap/jquery/

Unfortunately the majority of commercial web applications that I can think of at the moment, or dynamic web applications that all run from the same page, are found within enterprise web portals that are not publically viewable.

Generally a shopping site that navigates to different pages for it's processing is just a website, accessible or otherwise, so if that's what you guys are after, that broadens the possibilities.

Web applications in contrast are more restrictive and usually refer to heavily JavaScripted client side interactivity managed from within a small number of web pages, or as portal web apps dynamically injected into other web pages.

Well, though I am loathe to admit it you might want to try checking out the
IBM Jazz site (jazz.net) It required a (free) login and they have a sandbox
where you can set up your own demo of their product line (which is used by
the Dept of Veterans Affairs, so it's gone through a fairly extensive 508
compliance test <I presume *wink wink*>):

- Change and Configuration Management,
- Quality Management, Requirements Management,
- Design Management
- Project Portal

I just set one up and can email an invite to use the one I just set up if
you want (or just go register and set your own up, it took me about 5
minutes)

Greg, Interesting, I've seen this error pop up in a LOT of sites (possibly
because they use dynamic coding to change it on the fly?), but gedverify.org
has a link that doesn't have any text associated with it:

There are several panels that need a way to link back to the top, this is an anchor tag.

How is this an error?
