Hi, We could discuss, at LibreCon Brno, the situation of accessibility of LibreOffice now. I was glad to see that people were interested in improving it, fixing bugs or adding new features which could make LO a really novative productivity suite for disabled people (in particular on Impress or Writer).
Here's a talk where I show the concrete consequences of accessibility issues (on September), and how anyone could deal with most problems: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zmTDVN4C4c Since this, a lot of work has be done by dev and design teams. Many thanks! I'll test it mainly when 5.3 is released and we will maintain up-to-date the status of the situation. We also discussed the opportunity to introduce automated tests, eg. in continuous integration process, to avoid the easiest accessibility bugs. For example, a target in Makefile could test shat, in GTK widgets (parsing xml files generated by Glade), all labels are filled. It's one of the conditions to make it accessible later. I plan to discuss this for next FOSDEM conference in Brussels. If someone is interested in working on it with me, don't hesitate. I'm not a technician, but I can help if needed testing, doing feedback, or whatever. Once this tool would be integrated, we can think of the following steps to ensure more a11y still. Any feedback is welcome. Many thanks again to LO community for this work! And I hope I'll help with QA tests, better than I have done so far due to lack of time since Brno.
