Anything that uses the codeMirror editor will be ompletely unaccessible. I know the codeMirror developers are trying to correct the accessibility issues, but it has been the bane of my existence with our cloud applications.

Subject: [WebAIM] WordPress Accessibility

My organization is contemplating whether to move our website from html to WordPress for the reason that we would much more easily be able to update information in real time.

We absolutely cannot and do not wish to create anything that is less accessible than we currently have.

1. Does anyone have advice on what we ought to consider prior to making
such a move?
2. Are there consulting companies that really know the accessibility
themes in WordPress we should consider hiring in order to put a correct foundation on our site?
3. I hear some stories about WordPress introducing inaccessible editors
that might become a problem. Is that so, and, how can we avoid problems?

And finally,

4. Are there reasons why we should just stick to html and not put
ourselves through the headache of WordPress?

Thanks to all on this list. I am a lurker for many years and consistently find this list delivers high value content.
