Deprecated Canvas accordions and accessibility

In Ryan Shaw's helpful comment in this thread about Deprecated use of magic jQueryUI widget, Ryan wrote this concerning the reasons for the removal of Canvas' Style Guide accordions:

 

"First, sometimes the markup that gets created from people doing this in their content is not accessible. So, for example, users using a screenreader would not be able to use that content."

 

I would like to know more detail about the accessibility problems with the accordions.  Are the old accordions from the Style Guide just not accessible period?  Or only when used in certain ways?  Ryan wrote that they are "sometimes" not accessible, hence my question.

 

Thanks,

- Fred
