[Athen] Jira accessibility

We use JIRA here for project tracking and I would strongly agree. Its accessibility is not the best. For example, they use lots of dropdowns that are not that accessible when filling out forms. This is where you tend to memorize things and type them as exact matches to resolve that issue. We have tried to communicate with them about improving accessibility for JIRA but haven't gotten much of a response.

Subject: [Athen] Jira accessibility

Good morning,
OSU is currently in the process of purchasing Jira on demand for tracking our test cases and other issues. Our initial accessibility assessment is not promising. Does anyone on this list have a more full evaluation result we can pull from to give us a little more information of Jira's accessibility (or lack thereof)?
Your responses would be appreciated.
