[Jason] That's my impression too. They both have some accessibility features, but most of the comments I can recall having heard are to the effect that somewhat accessible content in either of these formats is the rare exception. I'm not convinced that serious effort will be devoted to trying to make such content conform to 2.1. Thus, I think the responsibility should rest with the plugin developers to implement features for Adapting Text, if they ever significantly work on further accessibility support for these formats, which I think we agree is doubtful.
