Canadian developer WebEdition Software Ltd. on Thursday released version 3.2 of
WebEdition, its browser-based content management system (CMS). The upgrade adds the ability to generate XHTML code that incorporates services for checking a Web site’s accessibility under the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines. In addition, WebEdition 3.2’s WYSIWYG editor now includes such features as extended language settings and table and cell summary options, which enhance screen readers used by Web surfers with vision impairment.
This upgrade also simplifies the inclusion of RSS news feeds and adds tips to the user interface that assist with administering and optimizing Web sites for accessibility by the disabled. WebEdition 3.2’s barrier-free framework enables administrators to make their sites accessible to PDAs, cell phones and similar devices. Contact WebEdition Software for pricing. The company does not note the minimum version of Mac OS X required to run WebEdition on a server, nor does it provide minimum Web browser requirements for the client side.
