I would also love to learn more about this topic. Webaim have an article
http://www.webaim.org/techniques/ooo/ We have found that there are issues
with tables especially if they are large - over two pages and save in Word -
when they go into Open Office sometimes only one section of the table
survives. Headers seem to also be an issue when reading larger tables.

Best wishes E.A.

Hi Listservers,

I just got a message from our Dean of Technology stating that the school is
considering moving from Microsoft Office to Open Office. I was wondering if
anybody knew of any compatibility issues that may exist between Open Office
and any assistive technology?
