Hi Sean,

We did some work with Moxiecode some years back when ATAG 2 was under 
development, to make TinyMCE 3 ATAG 2 compliant. For a while it was the 
only open WYSIWYG editor that did comply, being accessible to screen 
readers, and helping authors produce accessible content.

http://archive.tinymce.com/wiki.php/TinyMCE3x:Accessibility

Unfortunately with the introduction of TinyMCE 4, which the current 
Wordpress uses, much of the accessibility work done on V3 was lost. You 
can no longer use it with a screen reader, or with a keyboard for that 
matter.

I can't speak for for other CMS, but if they are using a current version 
of TinyMCE, they will not be ATAG compliant.

Perhaps you, or someone, could remind the TinyMCE folk about that work 
with V3. It would not take too much to replicate that with the current 
version.
