Production Department Coordinator (Marco Dings)

  • Release date J4

Joomla Accessibility Team (Christiane Maier-Stadtherr)

  • Christiane found a text (in the release announcements) with outdated info about which WCAG Joomla supports. We support WCGA 2.1 - We have informed the marketing team and they will change release notes this way: With Joomla4 We have aimed for W3C Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 (with AA compliance)
  • We are working on a comprehensive description of what ATAG and what WCGA are regarding Joomla.
  • We need a team of translators who can help resolve the problem of languages with nominative month names. This is also related to the localisation of the calendar and it is an accessibility issue. Language must be correct. Only people who know these languages can help there.
