This webring does not accept

This webring is focused on people.

Because of this, it is not interested in listing accessibility companies and professional organizations. If that is something you are looking for, check this list of professional help.

This webring also forbids participation from overlay companies, as well as employees of overlay companies. This is due to overlays’ exploitative, unethical behavior and damaging impact on digital accessibility efforts.

Please refer to our code of conduct for further information about acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
