Idea "DocumentCheck" migrated to the Design Team Wiki

Hi all,

just for your information ... I've added the idea "DocumentCheck" to the
Design Team wiki by migrating some OOo UX content. I worked it out
almost two years ago ... and now it got some new drive, since I've
noticed a presentation by Christophe Strobbe who talked about an "ODT
Accessibility Checker" - this is highly related :-)

Christophe and myself agreed that it might be helpful to have that
content in the TDF wiki, so that its easier to work on it. The new
whiteboard page is here:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Whiteboards/DocumentCheck

The LibreOffice Conference 2011 presentation (unfortunately, no link to
presentation files yet):
        "Generating Accessible Documents with LibreOffice Writer" by
        Bert Frees and Christophe Strobbe (LibreOffice Conference 2011,
        Friday afternoon, 2 p.m.).

The original page (in the OOo UX wiki) can be found here:
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/User_Experience/DocumentCheck

My original OOo UX blog posting:
http://uxopenofficeorg.blogspot.com/2009/12/brainstorm-new-ideas-document-check.html

Cheers,
Christoph

AccessODF, accessibility checker for Writer files

Hi,

Yesterday, the K.U.Leuven released AccessODF, a new open-source 
extension for LibreOffice Writer and OpenOffice.org Writer that helps 
authors evaluate and repair accessibility issues. You can download 
the extension from <http://sourceforge.net/projects/accessodf/>. A 
press release is available at 
<http://accessodf.sourceforge.net/PressRelease_Extensions_20111108.odt> 
and <http://accessodf.sourceforge.net/PressRelease_Extensions_20111108.pdf>.
The extension does not only identify accessibility issues and provide 
repair suggestions (like Microsoft Office 2010) but also provides 
automatic or semi-automatic repair functionality where possible. For 
example, if the checker finds an empty heading or a table where rows 
are allowed to break across pages, you can simply press the repair 
button to fix that ("automatic repair"). If the checker finds an 
image without alt text, pressing the repair button will open the 
dialog where you can enter a text alternative, which saves you a few 
steps ("semi-automatic repair").
AccessODF complements to other extensions: odt2daisy, which exports 
Writer documents to DAISY, and odt2braille, which exports Writer 
documents to a Braille format or sends them to an embosser. Both 
extensions are available on SourceForge. Accessibility evaluation was 
a feature frequently requested by users of odt2daisy and odt2braille.

Unfortunately, due to limitations in the APIs provided by LibreOffice 
and OpenOffice.org, the AccessODF user interface is not accessible to 
screen reader users and other keyboard users. (This will require 
changes in the office suites.)

This is the first release of AccessODF, and I look forward to

Re: AccessODF, accessibility checker for Writer files

Hi :)
Added it to the page
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/LibreOffice_In_The_Press
so it's top of the list.  It's good to push Slackware down a bit because even Gnu&Linux users tend to find it
scary! ;)  I put your name in the journo's column :)
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

It's neither interesting nor useful.  It's spam and leads to a "404 not found" page.  (Tested on
Gnu&Linux, avoided on Windows.
