Another Voice Weighs in on Carousels
Carousels may not be the best way to make sure that everyone's content is available on your website, after all. Conversion XL makes a good case against using this popular design feature.
Accessible University Demonstration Website
The University of Washington's AccessComputing shop maintains the Accessible University Demo website. The project includes two demo sites that are fantastic tools to help you to learn the difference between accessible and inaccessible websites. The site includes documentation about what makes one page more accessible than the other. Use the sites to sharpen your testing skills or to try out a new testing tool.
