Accessibility and MOSS 2007

Mart posted an interesting tidbit where he talks about something that Microsoft Netherlands is working on - a SharePoint template that meets the guidelines set by Dutch government (only in Dutch).

If you need to build a WCAG compliant site, you are in for a whole lot of work - but there are some resources out there which might help you:

Luckily Andrew Woodward already published an overview of how SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and Microsoft Office Server 2007 compare with regards to accessiblity -  Priority 1 (Level A compliance) requirements of the WCAG 1.0 specification. You might probably also want tot take a look at the Technet article about browser support in MOSS 2007.

Recently we have actually managed here at Imtech ICT (NL) to come with a solution which improves the SharePoint's page rendering process. I describe the idea at: http://www.sharepointblogs.com/tmt/archive/2007/10/20/Accessible-Web-Content-Management-Solutions-based-on-Microsoft-Office-SharePoint-Server-2007.aspx.
Any questions are welcome.
