Are widgets ADA compliant ?

There is unfortunately not a simple yes/no answer to this question.
If the question is 'can I make ADA compliant widgets with BookWidgets', the answer is yes. If the question is 'will all widgets I make be ADA compliant', the answer is no.
Both the widget type as well as well as how you configure it have an impact on ADA compliance.
BookWidgets has different 'widget templates' that get filled in with different types of user content. Some widgets, e.g. a Quiz can be ADA compliant. Others perform functions which can't be ADA compliant, e.g. some are very visually focused, e.g. a hotspot image, or have have a function which can't be controlled by a keyboard, e.g drawing in the whiteboard widget.
Even if a Quiz can be ADA compliant, it doesn't mean all Quizzes will be: we have about 30 different question types, and also there some are visually oriented or the function doesn't allow keyboard control e.g. dragging and dropping of images, image multiple choice questions, whiteboard questions... Were for some of these we could do more to make them technically ADA compliant, it would usually defeat the purpose... e.g. if you're using an image multiple choice question the goal is to interpret the image... you should not have an alt text which explains what's seen...
There is of course also the widget creator dependency, if you want to create an ADA compliant Quiz you not only need to restrict yourself to the question types which are ADA compliant (e.g. text multiple choice, multi select, text input questions, ...), you also need to provide the alt text for the images which you do insert, you need to provide transcripts for all audio / video content...

In summary: you can create an ADA compliant widget, e.g. a Quiz, but you need to restrict yourself to the simpler question types... only use images where an alt text can be specified, ...
