RE: Accessible CMS

Rosie, et al.

This was my question a few months ago. The general consensus of the group
here - I think - was "no" and that's because even the best CMS can be made
to render inaccessible web pages.

I am still searching and recently found Jim Byrne's site which Karl just
pointed out to you. Jim markets this as an accessible CMS system and it look
like a very nice product. But the caution that was expressed before still
stands. Without some knowledge and understanding of accessibility issues,
one could still create an inaccessible website.

I will probably give QnECMS a whirl. But I am still cautious.

Others was to weigh in?

I'm investigating CMS's at the moment, specifically ones that adhere to
accessibility standards and guidelines.

Any one out there know of any good ones? Ones to avoid?
