Thanks Marc. It would be a good marketing aspect if LibreOffice can
state that they are working towards making their package as accessible
as possible for all users, including those who have special

Someone on this list must know where I can get my answers without
subscribing to the various list.
Ok - let's start here - have you looked at the wiki page?
If you start with that page, what other information are you looking
sorry for answering myself - but - for one thing the extensions
information is well a bit weak, the information regarding
is not present and the others lacking, IMO.
I was even given that information.
I am on the accessibility list as well. I have to say that the traffic
is quite low for now (2-3 messages/month) although the members are
quite knowledgeable. The list is quite a new area for me and I joined
out of curiosity about accessibility considerations in LibreOffice.
It sounds like the Accessibility area of our main website is perhaps
not as descriptive and informative as it should be. I'll leave a note
on the list asking if some of the members could take a look at the
page to see if there is a need for more information. Perhaps we are
not that strong in this area and it is reflected by the amount of
information provided on the website page. I'm not sure.
I wonder if any of the Voice-to-Text packages like "Dragon" that is
advertised on TV works with LibreOffice. If LibreOffice is known to
work with some of these packages [Microsoft had a free one once], then
it could be stated as well. Whatever can be stated that makes
LibreOffice easy to use [especially easier than MSO] would be an
advantage. This package is not "completely" supporting .docx and other
of the newest MSO file formats, but hopefully that will become better
supported. Stating it can read/write Word .doc and Excel .xlt files
works for my clients when I do computer support. I still get/use those
types of files and templates and even though I save my copies to ODF
formats, I send them on as MSO files to those who have not yet switched
due to "agency" IT policies. Many of these agencies are those who
support the needs of the disabled/impaired individuals, both adult and
I have a statement on the demo site for the Americas DVD project.
LibreOffice supports a large number of file formats, including the
Open Document Format [ODF], Microsoft® Office file formats, HTML,
WordPerfect, Rich Text Format, Lotus formats, Office Open XML, along with
many other word processor, database, spreadsheet, image/drawing, and
other formats used for personal and business needs.
It seems that there are over 80 lines in the open file type option in
the initial screen. It may be a good idea to list out all these
supported files some place on the distribution DVDs when you give
information about what file formats LibreOffice can read and those it
can write as. It may be something that could be given out on a sheet
or brochure with the CD/DVD copy of LibreOffice. I am thinking about
that myself. If there is something like that already made, it would be
easier than me making one up.
But back to the Accessibility issue. It would be nice to be known as an
organization the cares about the needs of better accessibility for
software packages. Though it is a small market group, it seems to be
good press. And the more good press LibreOffice gets, the better it is,
