I'm not entirely sure of the answer to this, though I can't really think how embedding in a website would make it compliant while viewing on Tableau Server would not. After all, Tableau Server is really just embedding the viz on a web platform. But, the following has a lot of resources on accessibility and compliance. I think you should find what you need there: FAQ: Accessibility

Hi Amy -
The new Tableau 2019.4 Viewer Access Accessibility Report (VPAT) documents the Section 508 compliance of UI in Tableau Server and Tableau Online for viewing dashboards (not for the dashboards themselves). In 2019.4 we dramatically improved the accessibility of this portion of the application. We have plans going forward to continue enhancing the accessibility of the rest of the Server/Online UI for content consumption purposes. Our priority is the accessibility of all functionality available to a user with "Viewer" privileges.

Thanks for jumping in Kyle. Okay if I tag you in the future when I see these questions?
Thank you for your reply. Things got crazy around there last few months and now I circling back again. My account sales rep Nick Brendes had just referred me to your TC19 session recording on this topic. I found it really useful and I think it answered my question - so starting 2019.4, if I build my dashboard according to the accessibility guideline, it should be Section 508 compliant when viewer in Tableau Server. Please correct me if I have misinterpret the information. Thank you.
Hi Amy -
The second VPAT we have, for "Embedded Views", documents a "best case" scenario for how a properly authored dashboard follows WCAG/Section 508 guidelines and requirements. I try to stay away from saying something is "508 compliant" or not in a yes/no fashion as it's a quite complex topic with room for judgement on each guideline.
