I concur with Kai here. To the best of my knowledge no such VPAT exists
yet for Octave, but we would be happy to host one on the Octave web site
if one is created and it is helpful to people.

I would be willing to help fill in some of the details on the template.
I think we will probably need help from someone more familiar with
accessibility in general, and maybe from someone who is familiar with
the definitions on this template in particular.

Maybe we should move this to the maintainers mailing list? I set
Reply-To appropriately.
