    dda compliant website

    Hi all, i recently had a call from a company offering to build me a new school website, ours is not brilliant but it suffices, built on a mambo platform, i was reminded/informed that our site is not dda compliant and should be, does anyone know what this involves, how i can make my mambo site compliant, if i swap to joomla are these dda compliant?

    thanks as always in advance.

    The W3C's published standards and accessibility guidelines (WCAG & WAI) are generally regarded as suitable guidelines for accessibility requirements. The WAI has three priority levels A, AA and AAA (levels 1, 2 and 3), Level AA is recommended and level A is the minimum acceptable standard for accessibility.

    You can run your site through several website to check for dda compliance.

    All school websites should be dda compliant.
