Tendenci should be 100% accessible. We aren't there yet. If there is something clearly broken in core please post an issue at https://github.com/tendenci/tendenci/issues

However there is also accessibility that passes an online checker but is a pain. Like every image having an alt tag but the alt tags are all image.gif. That feedback is welcome in this thread. smile

What is the best method of testing an entire site for accessibility? So far the best accessibility tester I have found and have been using on Tendenci is the Web Accessibility Measurement Tool http://wave.webaim.org/
