My name is Judy and I'm the accessibility analyst at the California State Polytechnic University in Pomona. A member of our faculty would like to install the GNU Octave software in the library which then opens it up to all students. We would like to review the software for accessibility.


In accordance with section 508 standards, the CSU system is committed to ensuring that its programs and services are accessible and usable by all students, faculty, and staff, including those with disabilities.


I'm inquiring to see there is a VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) for GNU to help us with this review. If so, can you please provide? If not, can you provide some information about its accessibility?


Thank you!

Dear Judy Shui,

Thank you for considering using GNU Octave in your university library.  To my knowledge, Octave does not have a VPAT [1] document yet.
Was it helpful for you if we created a VPAT, for example "", containing information like RedHat [2] or GitHub [3] provide?
Moreover does the VPAT need to be checked/created by some official institution?

Kind regards,

Kai T. Ohlhus
