I've placed Bug 39956 - Implement the IAccessible2 accessibility API onto the Document Foundation 
Vote for Enhancements wiki found here:

Most folks would be surprised to find just how spotty and incomplete Accessibility and Assistive 
Technology tools offered with LibreOffice are. But, I think all can agree that the current UNO - 
Java Accessibility Bridge continues to present Java Runtime Environment configuration issues for 
Windows. While Linux/Unix users supported with ATK and AT-SPI have had it better, there are a fair 
number of unresolved AT issues that affect all LibO/AOo users. Emerging AT-SPI2 efforts of the Open 
Accessibility (A11y) Group that require integration into LibreOffice are backing up.

Implementing IAccessibility2 (NOT a trivial technical issue) would improve accessibility and 
Assistive Technology tools across all implementations of LibreOffice, and during the effort would 
present an opportunity to fully implement A11y recommendations.

Please review the issues affecting this often overlooked aspect of LibreOffice, and let the BOD and 
Developer community know more consistent and complete accessibility support is an effort worth 
pursuing by commenting on the "Vote for Enhancements" wiki.
