A question I've been wondering, and that Orca users are wondering, and
that the GNOME accessibility team is wondering is: What's the story with
LibreOffice accessibility? In particular:
* Is the fork so complete that fixes made in OOo will not even be seen
-- or incorporated into LibreOffice even if they are seen? Or
* Are things from OOo still being cherry picked for inclusion in
LibreOffice -- or would be if they were pointed out via bugzilla?
* Is there an active a11y team and/or developers focused on a11y issues
And, yeah, I know: It's open source. And getting and building the code
is a zillion times easier than is the case with OOo (for which I'm truly
grateful). So I should just submit patches. :-) Let's pretend we've
already had that discussion with the conclusion being that I sincerely
promise to contribute as soon as I get caught up on my DayJob, Orca
work, GNOME 3 issues, etc., etc. In meantime.... What's the story w.r.t.
the questions above?
Oh, and yes, I already inquired on the accessibility list a couple of
months ago. No one there seems to know and the only advice I got was to
file bugs in both issue trackers. Thus if any of y'all can shed light on
the situation it would be super.
Thanks in advance!
