I always feel like this when folks ask if their Libraries are ADA

the fact that Koha is web based doesn't mean it's 508 compliant.
However, I feel Orwellian in stating that some systems are more equal
than others, and as pointed out by another respondant, at least the hood
is open to allow tooling for 508 compliance. Over the years, I have
fielded a number of queries sent by people with limited or no sight

agency? This would be one of very many stops I would make in trying to
get a feel for the proper steps one would take towards compliance.
