Via Karl Groves of Tenon-IO - This is just feedback for the initial view of the forum with no topics.
<!--//
General feedback:
* Kill accesskey. Loads of trouble for little-to-no benefit
* Eliminate tabindex in any case where it is > 0
* Lose the title attributes

Suggested breadcrumb markup
Note: The stuff in the breadcrumb separator span should be CSS generated content. (<span class="bbp-breadcrumb-sep">›</span>)
In the following model it'd be:
.bbp-breadcrumb ul li a::after{ content: ' ›'; }
//-->
<div class="bbp-breadcrumb">
<ul>
<li><a href="http://wp-test:8888/" class="bbp-breadcrumb-home">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="http://wp-test:8888/?post_type=forum" class="bbp-breadcrumb-root">Forums</a></li>
<li><span class="bbp-breadcrumb-current">Developers – General</span></li>
</ul>
</div>
<span id="subscription-toggle">

Fieldset is generally best reserved for cases where you need to disambiguate sets of similarly named
fields and/ or where clarification of the label is need. Perfect use cases would be shipping address vs. billing address
Screen readers usually read the legend before each label. So, for instance:
"Create New Topic in “Developers – General” [pause] Topic Title (Maximum Length: 80)"
This is pretty verbose and, in this case, not necessary, because it is pretty obvious what the purpose of the form is.
A heading is better:
//-->
<h2>Create New Topic in “Developers – General”</h2>
<div class="bbp-template-notice">
<p>Your account has the ability to post unrestricted HTML content.</p>
</div>
<!--//
Validation error messaging
The use of a list allows the user to know how many errors were found
Be sure to shift focus directly to this div
$('.error:first').focus();
//-->
<div class="bbp-template-notice error" role="alert" tabindex="-1">
<ul>
<li><strong>ERROR</strong>: Your topic needs a title.</li>
<li><strong>ERROR</strong>: Your topic cannot be empty.</li>
</ul>

Note the use of aria-label below, to add better labels
The accessible name for input[type=button] comes from the 'value' attribute.
So value="b" is literally announced as 'b button'
Adding aria-label allows the label to be clear
