The advantage of small scale funding is that it can be highly targeted and the administration and auditing burden is much lower than in large projects. Success comes quickly. The projects have been subdivided into categories to make it easier to find projects of interest:

Perceivable - Accessibility This article provides practical advice on how to write your web content so that it conforms to the success criteria outlined in the Perceivable principle of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
