Enable accessibility for handicapped people

Enable accessibility for handicapped people

Brief Description:
Enable accessibility for handicapped people
Benefits / Value:
We have made an accessibility assessment for the Micro Focus-OO UI, for the use case execution part.
This investigation showed a lot of issues for the use by prohibited people.

The biggest issues are:
- Important functions are not operable with the keyboard.
- Data tables cannot be perceived in a structured manner.
- The treeview is not perceivable with the screen reader.
- Some contents cannot be perceived by blind users.

And there are several others.
Could you give us an estimation if and until when this could be fixed?
We need that for the approval of the application usage by the workers council.

Note that OO has undergone Section 508 / WCAG evaluation and the VPAT can be requested here: https://www.microfocus.com/en-us/about/accessibility-conformance-reports

So this idea is not to add 508/WCAG compliance but rather to potentially improve it beyond current levels.  A more detailed list of issues may be required to properly consider this request.
