Open Accessibility Alliance
The Open Accessibility Alliance (OAA) supports the development of open source tools for evaluating the accessibility of web based resources and the development of coding practices for inclusive web design (i.e. accessible to people with disabilities). This group is being formed based on a new initiative of the CIC Information Technology Accessibility Group and inviting people that are currently part of the Web Accessibility Best Practices Group . More information available on the Open Accessibility Alliance web page.
