The latest accessibility standards
Especially for an inclusive aid organisation like CBM, all content must be easily perceivable and clearly understandable for people with visual, hearing and other disabilities. For this reason, the new TYPO3 website is completely geared towards accessibility: Both in the design - font, images and colour scheme - and in the technical implementation. Accessibility has been externally tested and confirmed: The website is WCAG-compliant and thus achieves the latest accessibility standard.
