MSF&W has extensive experience developing and implementing accessible, web-based, web content management systems that enable non-technical staff to create and maintain web sites that are up-to-date, accessible, and usable.
OneNet: Accessible Web Content Management System
MSF&W developed the open source OneNet Web Content Management System for the State of Illinois. OneNet is specifically designed to enable non-technical web authors to create content that is accessible to people with disabilities.
OneNet's key feature is its custom, web-based WYSIWYG editor. Wherever possible, the OneNet Editor enforces compliance with leading accessibility standards. The editor also provides a set of "accessibility checkers" that walk authors through the process of checking accessibility issues that cannot be checked automatically.
The Illinois Department of Human Services has been using OneNet since January 2004. To date, OneNet has been used by more than 350 editors to create and manage nearly 40,000 pages on the DHS intranet and web site, with an average of 100 pages edited per day.
The OneNet framework has also been used to create eight custom application modules, including a 15,000-person, user-maintained staff directory, an office locator, a training calendar/registration system, a job posting system, an equipment request tracking system, and a customizable web survey tool.
