Website Content Management System Recommendations for Accessibility?


From: Tricia Sutton

I am working on a project that includes evaluating technology and options for accessibility, including the client's website (and more than the website). Do you have any recommendations on content management systems (CMS) that improve accessibility for the blind and deaf-blind to use when building a new website? I do understand a lot of accessibility has to come from the web designers and developers following good practices related to alt text, layout, format and more. Aside from that though:

* Do any specific CMS work better or help make sure the accessibility features are built in?

* Are any CMS more accessible to use for staff members who have varying degrees of impairment (on the continuum from partial vision loss to fully blind and fully deaf-blind)?

Thanks in advance for your ideas and input.
