include a “skip navigation” link at the top of webpages that allows people who use screen readers to ignore navigation links and skip directly to webpage content;
minimize blinking, flashing, or other distracting features;
if they must be included, ensure that moving, blinking, or auto-updating objects or pages may be paused or stopped;
design online forms to include descriptive HTML tags that provide persons with disabilities the information they need to complete and submit the forms;
include visual notification and transcripts if sounds automatically play;
provide a second, static copy of pages that are auto-refreshing or that require a timed-response;
use titles, context, and other heading structures to help users navigate complex pages or elements (such as webpages that use frames).
Make sure that websites are designed so they can be displayed using the color and font settings of each visitor’s browser and operating system.
If images are used, including photos, graphics, scanned images, or image maps, make sure to include a text equivalent, by adding “alt” tags or long descriptions, for each.
If you use online forms and tables, make those elements accessible by labeling each control (including buttons, check boxes, drop-down menus, and text fields) with a descriptive HTML tag.
When posting documents on the website, always provide them in HTML or a text-based format (even if you are also providing them in another format, such as PDF).

On their respective blogs, David Bolter wonders about WAI-ARIA support and Steve Faulkner of the Paciello Group questions a number of missing features, including:
However, and according to the Google Accessible help pages, Google Chrome now supports the Windows Accessibility API (MSAA) to display accessibility information and events for its features and web content.
