Yes, they have committed to accessibility by default in their core
products beginning with Drupal7. More info at:


Now, please recognize Drupal does not control what individual
contributors might do with the modules they contribute. This is why
Drupal's accessibility statement talks about "Drupal core."

In my experience the implementation appears to have been focussed at end
users so far, more than the authoring end of things, i.e. the site
building and management interfaces are, in my judgement, in need of a
bit more TLC for a11y.

Still, I think Drupal is a good choice, if one intends to get good at
accessible web site creation. It is, however, a powerful, multi-faceted
tool that will take time to learn, imo.
