Subject: Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] LibeOffice VPAT compliance

Again, if my previous messages were not clear enough: we do not know about the 
VPAT compatibility of LibreOffice, because this is a mailing list to discuss 
accessibility issues and not to provide information about LibreOffice 
accessibility.

The fact that you are using LibreOffice 6.4.6 is completely irrelevant for us 
because we do not have the information to answer your question, as the scope of 
the mailing list is completely different.

We are volunteers supporting the LibreOffoce project and interested in 
accessibility, but we do not have the competence and the information to answer 
your question, which can only be provided by the legal entity behind 
LibreOffice, i.r. The Document Foundation.

In addition, most of the mailing list subscribers are based in Europe, and are 
not familiar with US accessibility regulations. It is possible that no one 
based in the US is subscribed to the accessibility mailing list.

So, to get an answer you should write to i...@documentfoundation.org, because 
the foundation's Board of Directors is the only body who knows about 
LibreOffice accessibility compliance with different regulations, and - if 
necessary - can provide the legal evidence.

Best regards, Italo
