As you probably already know,  all MacOSX computers are equipped with a
built-in  screen reader software called Voice Over. I would like to use
your office suite, but, unfortunately, there are various important 
accessibility issues. 

I don't have a Mac myself, but maybe other persons on this list have one.
What kind of accessibility issues did you encounter? Are they related to
the user interface (for example dialogs where certain fields have no
label)? Are they related to missing access to accessibility features in
documents (for example, no access to the alternative text for an image)?
Does the keyboard get trapped in certain parts of dialogs? 

Best regards,


I would like to know if you are interested to work
out some solutions with a group of Italian-Blind-Mac-users.
if so please let me know and I can organize and provide you with
indications on what could be important and feed back on how your work

I think that the LibreOffice suit is a very important project and I am
sure that all accessibility work could bring good news not only for the
italian blind comunity but for all the folks which use mac and voiceover
worldwide as well.
