My company is trying to make our help system, created using RoboHelp HTML 2015, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliant at the "AA" level. Has anyone had their Responsive HTML5 output successfully evaluated as WCAG-compliant? Our developers are concerned the tabbing order from table of contents to content window will cause us to fail.
Never heard of WCAG (Section 508 yes), but a quick google reveals a number of site checkers you can run your site through to see if it meets the standard you want. If it doesn't, I would suggest sending Adobe a feature request to enable WCAG-compliant output.
The current Responsive HTML5 output is not compliant. It isn't really spectacular, mostly a few text labels are missing in the code. Using the tool mentioned, there are 16 errors, most of which you can fix by simply adding the labels in the HTML code of the layout. If compliance is important, you can make the template compliant by mostly just adding aria-label and title attributes.
Is this still the case?
If you don't hear from anyone at Adobe, I would suggest trying out a trial copy of RH2019 (apply all updates) & give it a buzz to see if a copy of your content comes out WCAG compliant now.
