SIGACCESS is a dynamic and exciting organisation for researchers, professionals, academics, and students working with or interested in computers and accessibility. To facilitate the sharing of information among the diverse group of people that make up group, the SIG provides a number of resources that can be used by the community.
The Thesis Repository maintains information about Ph.D. and Master’s theses related to assistive technologies, computer access, and the application of computing and information technology in solving relevant disability problems.
General Writing Guidelines reflects current thinking on language for writing in the academic accessibility community. Certain words or phrases can (intentionally or unintentionally) reflect bias or negative, disparaging, or patronizing attitudes toward people with disabilities and in fact any identifiable group of people. Choosing language that is neutral, accurate, and represents the preference of the groups to which it refers can convey respect and integrity.

There is also a captioned video describing how to add accessibility to a PDF, and instructions for building accessibility into a Microsoft Word document (only possible for PC users at this time).
