Accessibility improved OpenDocument v1.1 approved as OASIS Committee Specification

OpenDocument v1.1 has just been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification and is thus available for implementation.

The subcommittee of the OASIS OpenDocument Format TC focussing on accessibility aspects of OpenDocument recently published an Accessibility Evaluation of the OpenDocument v1.0 specification. In order to address the accessibility features identified by the accessibility study as quickly as possible, the OpenDocument TC prepared OpenDocument v1.1, which now has been approved an OASIS committee specification.

The Committee Specification ballot for OpenDocument v1.1 closed on October 19, and the specification was unanimously approved by the eligible voting members.

The OpenDocument v1.1 specification documents are available at Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
