Our College of Continuing Studies uses OUCampus and has had good experience with them re. accessibility. The college gave OUC our new institutional web accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0 AA) and the company worked with them really quickly to tweak themes and make reports to help meet the requirements.

I’ve also worked with Hannon Hill a little bit as part of their participation in HighEdWeb Alabama and they claim to be committed to accessibility and that their sites can meet any accessibility guidelines we need, but I don’t have direct experience from an institutional perspective.

Good afternoon!

Our college is in the midst of choosing a new CMS for our website. They’ve narrowed the field down to three options:

· Cascade Server (Hannon Hill)

· OUCampus (OmniUpdate)

· TerminalFour
I went through some demos with our webmaster for each of these about a year ago, and I have some older VPATs. Our webmaster is in the process of collecting updated VPATs and/or WCAG 2.0 reporting for each.

Does anyone have personal experience (positive or negative – accessibility, as well as general usability) with any of these CMS options? Any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks so much and have a fantastic week!
