If it’s true it ain’t bragging! Choosing a CMS for accessibility

Talk by Mitchell Evan, CPWA / View Slides

When selecting a content management system (CMS), you’re already asking: can it produce an accessible website? But a simple “yes” to that question is not enough.

In this presentation you’ll learn how to ask more detailed questions to find out the reality behind accessibilty claims.

  • How to use accessibility standards for authoring tools to help answer the detailed questions: WCAG 2.0 and 2.1; US and EU public procurement standards; ATAG
  • The importance of the “prompts” requirement
  • How to read a VPAT report skeptically
  • What to look for in a trustworthy accessibility report
  • ATAG’s unique extra conformance requirements
  • Why we should treat ATAG as required, even when it’s not explicitly listed in policy
