In many cases, it's possible to make the output of the CMS accessible.
This depends on:
--how clean/good is the code that the WYSIWYG editor generates; and
--how clean/good is your template code.

The bigger problem in my opinion is the accessibility of the actual CMS
interface as a web application/web client. What if users of assistive
technology actually have to use the CMS to edit their web content? I'm
just guessing, but I bet most vendors fail pretty miserably in this
