help please - accessibility info

I do not want to be a part of the Accessibility List, but I would like to know what is being done to help those with this type of issue.

I am on the Board of the Kiwanis Aktion Club of Elmira New York. This Kiwanis family organization [International, Regional, and Local] is dedicated to the adult community that have a disability or some type. You must be an adult with a disability/impairment to be invited to become a member.

So, I am always interested in ways for software packages [and computers in general] to be accessible to the needs of those with disabilities/impairments, to allow these individuals to be able to use the products. I deal with many members with hand injury issues to developmental issues. I deal with a few blind individuals as well, but that that is a much harder impairment issue group to use computers, except through voice controlled and text reading systems.

Could I receive some information on what is in the future of LibreOffice's accessibility efforts? Would a list of what some needs for some the various disables/impaired individuals to make a software package fulfill those needs? I myself and physical impairments and other issues placed upon me from several major injuries and three strokes. That is why I am volunteering my time to help those who have it difficult to function in the local community like myself.
