Search Accessibility Guidelines for Web Sites

I have created a Google co-op custom search engine with which you can search web accessibility guidelines. I have categorized each included page by country (for government guidelines) and I am adding more guidelines and categories. This means you can easily search e.g. the New Zealand guidelines for PDF recommendations.

If you work with accessibility guidelines you may find this useful. Suggestions are of course always welcome.

    Cool! I only miss the Dtuch quidelines (I am Dutch). They can be found at Webrichtlijnen Overheid , but are not in English…

    Thanks for this, it will be really useful. Do you know about the WAI’s big list of accessibility policies?

    In Spain, I don’t know any “web design guidelines” of the Spanish Government, but there is a law and an official standard:

    - Ley de Servicios de la Sociedad de la Información y de Comercio Electrónico (E-business and Information Society Services Law).

    - Spanish standard UNE 139803:2004 de AENOR.
