RE: Case 1319198 Gnu Octave Scientific Programming Language Accessibility Review

IT Service Desk

I am the EIT Accessibility Manager at Utah Valley University. I have been asked to evaluate Octave for accessibility. Is there a current VPAT or other documentation of conformance with accessibility standards for Octave?

 

View your case

 

Thank You

Hi,

Thanks for your message. This should likely go to the users list. It may
be helpful to read:
https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/support.html

As Octave is mostly community maintained, open source with the
possibility of paid support,  perhaps you might be willing to download it:
https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/download.html
and let us know if this is something that would be useful to produce,
and whether you can help with this if it is something that would be adopted.

Regards,
Benson

Last year, we had a similar request for a VPAT (Voluntary Product
Accessibility Template) [1] from the "California State Polytechnic
University in Pomona" [2,3,4].

@Laura Loree, can you teach us what this document is, where we can get
it, and how to fill it out to be of use for US universities?  The link
"for our case" you provided seems to be for internal use only, or should
post username and password ;-) *PLEASE DO NOT*
