Hi Simon,

there is a page that I believe Karl Hebenstreit originally put together a
while ago that links to various sites which claim conformance - the URI for

  Dear All,
  I am putting together a survey for my parent company about the state of play in accessibility in the UK. I was wondering if anyone out there knows of any sites that are accessible, even to the minimum standard of Priority One only, although I am interested in sites that exceed this and, if such a thing exists, a site that conforms to all Web standards for Accessibility.

  I am doing my own research, but I am having to quickly run diagnostics on all sites I find, so help would be very much appreciated. There is no hurry. I am interested in all kinds of sites, from commercial shopping and banking sites to information sites on disabled products. In fact, anything except personal sites that document someone's love of their dog or similar. Also, charity sites for the disabled in the UK I have covered off already as they are very often optimised for the organisation's own community.

  Thank you all in advance. Use this as an opportunity to brag if you want as good sites will be noted in the final survey. This is an internal survey for the parent company I work for, so unfortunately, it will only get seen by senior management in this company, not the general public.

  I appreciate that I am asking you people to do half my job for me and I will understand completely if no one wants to help as I get paid to do this. But, deadlines loom and I simply cannot find a good cross-section of sites to test without some help.

  I shall sign off before I begin to beg.

  Kind regards
