Yes, I know, but my previous answer is valid. This is a volunteer attended mailing list and we 
cannot provide an answer to your question because we are not allowed to do so. So, please write to 
the other email I provided. Best regards.

Hello Italo,

The Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) section 508 is about the product irrespective 
of which Operating System.

The VPAT is to support users with disabilities, help users to be able to use the application.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] LibeOffice VPAT compliance

Dear Sir,

LibreOffice is a free open source software, released by a not for profit foundation based in 
Germany: The Document Foundation. The source code of LibreOffice is re-packaged by Red Hat to be 
included in RHEL.

You have sent your message to a mailing list manned by volunteers, who are dealing with 
accessibility features but not with accessibility legal compliance. We do not know enough the 
topic to provide a sensible answer and in any case we would not be able to issue the document you 
have requested.

So, please send your request to the Board of Directors of The Document Foundation, by writing to: I don't know if they will be able to issue the document, but they 
will be able to answer your question.

Best regards, Italo Vignoli
