A Content Management System (CMS) is a software application or set of related programs that are used to create and manage digital content. There are quite a few alternatives to choose from, if you or your organisation are looking at creating a new website. Yet finding out which Authoring tool will be the most suitable for your needs requires some investigation, particularly as accessibility is an increasingly important part of website creation.
Media Access Australia (MAA), in conjunction with the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN), has launched a content-rich website with freely downloadable tip sheets, dedicated to showcasing a wide range of terrific accessible technology that won’t break your budget. Dr Scott Hollier, Media Access Australia’s Specialist Advisor, Digital Accessibility, was the project leader and speaks with Philip Jenkinson about this valuable new resource.
