Hi Sean,
With the Revised Section 508 standard in the US and EN 301 549 in Europe, 
there should be more focus on Authoring Tools accessibility going forward. 
Those standards focus on Part B of ATAG.
Part A covers many techniques which should already theoretically already 
be in practice to make UIs accessible on any applications that are 
claiming compliance with WCAG. That said, any rich text editor I've seen 
has some problems, and less 'dedicated' authoring tools (such as comment 
functions on social media) more so. At the other end of the spectrum, I 
haven't done too much work looking at IDEs to say if any meet ATAG.

Subject:        ATAG testing

This is a general query and would like to know if any CMS platform follows 
the ATAG 2.0 standard? What is the awareness of this standard in the 
development world and the general community? Thus far I don’t see much 
discussion on this standard and haven’t seen many CMS platforms that 
follow it. Does anyone use the standard for testing?
