The number of Austria's municipalities that maintain WAI-compliant websites is increasing. Even though the Web Content Management Systems (CMS) are able to generate accessible Web content, accessibility within the administrative backend itself is hardly considered. The paper describes an implementation concept for accessible Web CMS authoring tools. The implementation concept is derived from a criteria catalog that merged several accessibility and usability guidelines and a qualitative analysis of the Web CMS RiS-Kommunal. The paper includes the methodology used, the key findings of the analysis and the implementation concept.
