Sorry Jonathan,

I’m pretty confident that at no point in it’s lifecycle will Interwoven/TeamSite be ATAG 2.0 compliant. Even if you’re just looking at Part A, it is a really big jump for many legacy applications.

Most agencies do not demand that the admin side of their software is accessible. As with physical buildings, it is often easier to simply re-build them rather than retrofit them to meet modern accessibility requirements. 

I’ve started a document looking at how to get better language into procurement here:
	https://github.com/mgifford/a11y-contracting/

Meeting WCAG 2.0 AA for editors is no small undertaking and no browser extension is going to be able to insert the semantics that would be needed to make a rich interface meet those guidelines.

So many of the exciting pieces of ATAG 2.0 come from Part B. There are huge potential cost savings by guiding your authors to produce better content.  

Mike
