Knowledge database - Link tips and Tools

We want to encourage everyone involved in producing and promoting positive online content for children to learn more about accessibility through the work of relevant initiatives and organizations as well as already existing international standards and guidelines!


We have started a collection of link tips and online tools on the topic of accessibility and special needs of people with disabilities, which is meant to promote existing initiatives, standards and recommendations all over the world (please see below).
This so-called "knowledge database" based on input by experts and research still has very much potential to be expanded:

We want to invite everyone to send in more information, resources and best practice examples to be included. If you would like to participate in the project, you are welcome to send in additions and ideas via poscon@lmk-online.de.
