Greg,

Thank you for the information on the Wordpress editor as I have just taken over responsibility of a site. This is good information to know.

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.

All,

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?
