How are the iframes going to be used? I've seen edge cases where security restrictions in browsers can make it difficult to implement accessibility-related scripting behaviors across the iframe and the parent page.

It used to be that it was challenging for users of Voiceover on iOS to access the contents of iframes, but I haven’t done any testing on this in iOS 10 and one would imagine that was a bug that should have been eventually fixed.
If I remember next week I will put up a test page and give it a try.

We are debating about using iframes on a website and i thought I'd reach out to you all to see what you advice you might have.
My understanding from http://davidmacd.com/blog/is-title-attribute-on-iframe-required-by-wcag.html is that they may not be fully accessible, particularly for VoiceOver.
Then again http://webaim.org/techniques/frames/#iframe, along with http://accessibility.psu.edu/frames/#iframe, implies they might be as long as they have the title attribute.
Is adding the title enough to allow screen readers to access the content of an iframe?
