Massachusetts CIO Louis Gutierrez put out a statement yesterday on the Commonwealth’s progress in OpenDocument Format (ODF) implementation. It specifically addressed concerns about access for the disabled. Gutierrez states that there are a sufficient number of projects in the works that will allow access to ODF, including “translators” from Microsoft Office, and that he’s confident Massachusetts is still on target to have a series of “early adopter” agencies standardized on ODF by Jan. 1, 2007. ODF is the default file format in OpenOffice.org 2.0, which ships with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, so we’re encouraged to see Massachusetts continue its strategy to move toward an open platform for its documents.
