I have been periodically looking at assistive technologies for LiveCode 
built applications on desktop platforms (vs mobile) over the years. 
Certain OS bases assistive tool like screen magnifiers do work as they 
are application independent. Unfortunately, screen readers and voice 
recognition tools generally don't work with LiveCode because the 
application independent tools look to act on OS native controls which 
most LC app don't use through out.

With LC 9 and the FFI/Widgets it may be possible to build integration 
libraries for one or more of those assistive tools that require 
application specific integration, but I don't think anyone has done it.

For mobile ADA compliance, you best bet is to test your app with 
whatever OS level assistive tools are provided with iOS and Android or 
look in the associated App store for application independent assistive 
app to test with your app.

If you mobile uses all native controls it *may* work better with OS or 
3rd party assistive tool, but that is a guess. I have no mobile app
