Are OpenDocument accessibility features preserved by applications that export to other file formats?
This depends on the application. StarOffice and OpenOffice.org, for instance, make full use Adobe PDF tags for accessibility when OpenDocument files are exported to PDF, so long as the user selects the "Tagged PDF" option.
