Hi Lisa,
 
Lectora claims to be totally Section 508 compliant, they actually put out a VPAT several years ago:

In the VPAT the way they describe accessibility is developer controlled. And when you put out electronic materials, accessibility does not only depend on the authoring tool, the accessibility knowledge of the developer is just as important.
 
I don't have an extensive experience with the product, but a pointer to give you is that they work with some government agencies and companies which are very unlikely to accept a solution which is not Section 508 compliant.

Greetings, all -

The e-learning unit at the company I work for has adopted Lectora to use
in creating online courses. I'm going to be talking to our course
production team about the accessibility ramifications of using Lectora,
in terms of the content that it outputs, so I've been searching for
information (and I haven't found much).

If anyone has had experience using this tool or has knowledge about its
potential for producing accessible content that conforms to Web
standards, I would appreciate your input. Or, if you could point me to
any articles addressing the issue, that would be great, too.

Thanks,

Lisa Morgan
