Acessibility

Nowadays, the implementation of accessible solutions become vital, especially in the context of public services and organisms of central government, where there is a legal obligation to ensure accessibility by citizens with special needs (Council of Ministers Resolution No. 155/2007 DR No. 190, Series I, October 2nd).

The Plone community relies on hundreds of programmers who contribute to the development of Plone and thousands of additional packages (add-ons), taking advantage of its high extensibility.
