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.
