Re: Accessibility of Salesforce

I'd recommend taking a look at Salesforce's VPAT documents:

On a personal level, I use Salesforce and Desk.com for Tenon.
Salesforce itself is an incredibly complicated system. I have no data
to support this but I imagine that the system's complexity may
exacerbate any accessibility issues the system has.

It appears that newer Salesforce products have better accessibility
than stuff built on legacy code. Desk.com, for instance, is pretty
good. That doesn't mean it is perfect, which is why Tenon also accepts
support requests via email and telephone. Just the other day though I
engaged in a chat over Desk.com with a user on NVDA.
