CMS accessibility comparisons
The CMS you select for publishing your external and internal web content must be accessible.
We review and compare CMS accessibility against the W3C Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines Version 2.0 (ATAG2).
CMS review with ATAG2
Accessibility, from an authoring tool perspective, includes addressing the needs of two overlapping user groups with disabilities:
- authors of web content, whose needs are met by ensuring that authoring tool user interfaces are more accessible (addressed by Part A of the Guidelines), and
- end users of web content, whose needs are met by ensuring that all authors are enabled, supported, and guided by the authoring tools that they use toward producing accessible web content (WCAG) (addressed by Part B of the Guidelines).
It is important to note that, while the requirements for meeting these two sets of user needs are separated for clarity within the guidelines, the accelerating trend toward user-produced content means that, in reality, they are deeply inter-connected.
What we test
AccessibilityOz conducts high-level evaluations of CMS products against the ATAG2, Level AA.
- the generated output of the CMS content and/or
- the accessibility of a particular CMS interface.
This is particularly useful if you are:
- reviewing/comparing the accessibility of one or more CMSes to use for your new website, or
- determining the accessibility issues with your current CMS.
