Is Odoo compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 Level AA)?

Is there any module to provide the compliance?

No, it is not yet WCAG compliant and the website isn't currently either. (For example above this box I am typing in now, the buttons are not labeled).
But the architecture is there, there just needs to be some tweaks in the HTML.
I really hope there is some kind of response from the core developers on this, because our company and the U.S. government can't use any system unless it follows WCAG2. This includes public schools and colleges!
So they are alienating a rather large market by not making their architecture accessible right out of the box.
If there is any question on how HTML works, I hope they contact me, because the things I've seen are really silly. For an edit box they matched the from attribute in the label to the name in the edit box. This doesn't work, the label needs an id, not the name.
And on buttons, they just need to add in the text inside either the value field or between the tags. Then they need to add in headings on each page.
So really basic and super simple stuff that can be changed in the template.

I'm sure someone could rewrite a front-end to everything, but this would be a lot of work and it would probably be easier to just make an update to the core..
