Accessibility

  • Hi All,

    I volunteer with a great non-profit integrated dance organization here in Canada where people with and without disabilities come together to create and perform.

    We’re looking at a complete website overhaul in the new year and need to choose a CMS. An acquaintance of the organization is most familiar with (and suggesting) Drupal due to accessibility for people with disabilities.

    Admittedly, all of my recent web experience involves WordPress and I’m still fairly new to creating accessible websites, so the Drupal suggestion is out of my comfort zone. I’ve looked for some side-by-side accessibility comparisons of Drupal and WordPress but have come up short. Is one truly better than the other re: accessibility?

    Aside from better serving web visitors (people with and without disabilities, ratio of those users still TBD), goals of the new site are to re-claim the ability to make web updates ourselves (mainly text and imagery), facilitate more integrations (class registration with fee payments, database integration, events calendars, etc), and update the aesthetic appeal (while still gaining usability).

    We have a very limited budget and need to make sure we’re maximizing resources.

    If anyone has any recommendations or resources to point to, I’d be forever grateful.
