Open Document Format and Accessibility

Peter Korn has a thorough analysis of the accessibility implications of Massachusetts’ move to the Open Document Format. In particular, he looks at current assistive technology’s support for OpenOffice (one of the leading applications which currently supports ODF) and the accessibility of the file format itself.

It’s also worth mentioning Joe Clark’s take on the matter: A file format cannot be ‘accessible’.
