I think the FSF lawyers would refer everyone to the GPL and it's waivers of suitability.

How would an application like PSPP be compliant or non-compliant with ADA?  This website:

(which surely isn't legal advice) suggests that ADA does not apply to applications like PSPP (or, for that matter, SPSS) because they are not “places of public accommodation.”

But this is ultimately a question for the lawyers who would defend someone subject to the ADA (e.g., YSU), not for software developers.

I think that's something you have to see the FSF's lawyers, however, if you mean to have accessibility options could resort to other applications depending on the operating system you use.

This element can also be considered as an improvement to present as topic in the google summer of code. (high contrast icons, integration with orca, etc).

Greetings. We are interested in knowing if PSPP is compliant with the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Thanks.
