[Athen] Standards for Developing Accessible Software Applications?

I am working with a developer of antivirus software, who is interested
in increasing the accessibility of their UI. I am a screen reader user
myself, not a programmer. I can tell them about the pitfalls of using
nonstandard windows controls, advise them to adhere to standard windows
keyboard commands, etc. I'm wondering however, whether there are any
written guidelines which I could suggest that they study? There are any
number of similar standards out there for web developers, so I would
think that something similar should exist for developers of software

Thanks for any info,
