A common complaint that a lot of people have about SharePoint v3, especially those creating Internet facing sites, is that the rendered HTML is not very accessible in the sense that it isn't friendly to the disabled to rely on screen readers or other requirements (such as 508c which we have in the US).

The Accessibility Kit for SharePoint (AKS), which I previously blogged about, has now been released as v1 on CodePlex. Please don't think of the AKS as a complete solution, rather it is a set of building blocks that can be used in your implementation and also as an example. For support, you can opt-in to a e-mail list or use a special MSDN online forum that's been setup.
