Covering key areas of evaluation and methodology, client-side applications, specialist and novel technologies, along with initial appraisals of disabilities, this important book provides comprehensive coverage of web accessibility.

Written by leading experts in the field, it provides an overview of existing research and also looks at future developments, providing a much deeper insight than can be obtained through existing research libraries, aggregations, or search engines. In tackling the subject from a research, rather than practitioner standpoint, scientists, engineers and postgraduate students will find a definitive and foundational text that includes field overviews, references, issues, new research, problems and solutions, and opinions from industrial experts and renowned academics from leading international institutions including Adobe, Google, IBM, W3C, and York, Dartmouth and Kansai Universities.

I haven't finished reading this but so for I'm a bit disappointed that this book is not so much a foundation for research as it promises but rather a primer on this issue; information which can readily be found on the Web and at a much cheaper price. Didn't provide a lot of insight into this issue.
