Subject: Re: [office-accessibility] NY document format study -- Request for PublicComment


IBM Lotus Symphony has fully implemented MSAA/IA2. Now Symphony can support JAWS (a very popular AT tool), and should support other AT software that implements MSAA/IA2,e.g. Window-Eyes(not through fully testing). Symphony development team is contributing its Accessibility code to OpenOffice.org now.

[office-accessibility] NY document format study -- Request for Public Comment






Hi !

You may have heard that New York has just recently put out a Request for
Public Comment on "A study concerning electronic record policy for New
York State."

The list of questions are at the following URL, and the PDF file linked
from it:  
http://www.oft.state.ny.us/oftnews/erecords-study.htm

One question (#57 in the PDF) refers to a criticism of ODF  (no source
given), which is stated as:

"Another criticism of ODF has been that many vendors of assistive
technology software have not ported their software to ODF-based
applications."

The questionnaire then whether this is a valid criticism.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks,

-Rob
