A11Y is a two way street.
Both sets of developers (A11Y & other program) have to work together, so that the program
functions as expected, when using the A11Y software.

If the A11Y software developers don't take advantage of A11Y interfaces in the program, then
it does not matter what the program developers do, the A11Y software won't work with it.

I don't know what the issue with VoiceOver is, but in the Windows world, unless Freedom Scientific
recently changed their thinking, LibO and AOo are non-starters.For that matter, the same thing
is true for GW Micro.

NeoOffice is more likely to work with VoiceOver than LibO.

What seems really stupid to me, is that rather than develop software that is fully functional
for blind people, organizations will spend money teaching people that can't see, to fail to
be able to use software that not only is user-hostile to begin with, but requires vision to
be able to properly use.
