Subject: Re: [office] Re: [office-accessibility] Re: [office] Fw:[office-accessibility] Inclusion of tables in the .odp profile forpresentations

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question here: is it, from an A11Y perspective absolutely 
unacceptable to have embedded tables? If the application is able to 
activate the embedded object in-place and the activated context is 
sufficiently accessible...

Also from a file-format perspective, the structural information would be 
available, if the embedded table object is ODF.

I understand, that this is not very lightweight. I would like to know 
whether it has to be ruled out completely from an A11Y point of view.

All the best,
