Hi all,

I have an upcoming student project looking at accessibility for a specific organization/department (physical space, interactions, processes, print and digital materials, though the digital piece is minimal). This is not a formal audit, but could help inform recommendations for improvements or highlight a need for more formal investigation. I was curious if people have any favourite online or published resources they suggest for people getting familiar with accessibility (who also will only have everyday tech knowledge, not programming knowledge or in depth assistive technology knowledge). Example, I will give our students the Clearing Our Path website<https://www.clearingourpath.ca/> and WebAim<https://webaim.org/> and the Ontario AODA page<https://www.ontario.ca/page/accessibility-in-ontario>. They will also have access to Queen's University's library which will have a number of textbooks and online publications if anyone has good recommendations for print/digital texts.
Thanks and have a good day,
