Inclusion

Joomla translates to All Together, and this feeling of unity is one of our core beliefs. Inclusion is in our heart, and as a community, we do our best to accept and welcome everyone. Accessibility is the study and practice of how to best include people, regardless of technology or ability.

Our mission

Our main goal is to make all the Joomla Properties, the CMS, Framework and Portal, compliant with the WCAG 2.0 AA standard, a set of rules that make sure all aspects of a website or platform is Accessible for people with disabilities.

Beyond that, we will mobilize and work with extension and template providers to make all parts of the Joomla ecosystem accessible. By providing the CMS and Framework as a fully accessible foundation, as well as providing tools and information for the standards and processes, we hope to make Joomla, as a whole, a beacon for accessibility in the world.
