Yes, this version of RoboHelp helps you to create WebHelp output for users who have visual or hearing impairments, mobility impairments, or other types of disabilities. You can also take steps at a design level to remove obstacles for people with disabilities using your Help system.
RoboHelp 10 can also generate tagged PDF files that are partially accessible with the primary language defined. You can use Adobe Acrobat to complete the process by adding alternative text to images in the PDF file.
RoboHelp 10 features a Section 508 Compliant option for WebHelp that provides "alt" text (alternative text) for images, dynamic elements, frames, forms, and more. This text allows visually impaired people using a screen review aid (or assistive software) to "hear" where they are in your Help system and to know what buttons they are pushing.
While WebHelp Section 508 output is compliant for framesets and navigation, you need to make sure you develop Section 508 compliant topics.
