Default Accessibility checker extension for LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org released

From http://h-online.com/-1385752

Developers at the Belgian university Katholieke Universiteit Leuven have released AccessODF, an open source extension for the Writer word processing app in LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org. With the extension, Writer users can evaluate and repair accessibility issues in documents, including OpenDocument (ODF), DOC and Office Open XML (DOCX) files.

The accessibility checker works by finding issues in documents that make it hard or, at times, impossible for people with disabilities to read. These issues include insufficient colour contrast between text and background, missing alternative text for images and other objects, missing language identification, and the incorrect use of heading styles.


The developers have also released new versions of the odt2braille and odt2daisy extensions. The new version of the odt2braille extension, which adds a "Braille" menu to Writer that allows users to translate documents into Braille formats such as .brf or .pef or send the content to Braille printers for embossing, includes support for more languages and Braille embossers, as well as expanded formatting settings for professional users.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
