moderated Re: Office 2019 vs Office 365
For what it is worth, I’ve subscribed to 365 for several years and have never had any accessibility issues.
I opt to download and install the stand-alone version.
If having a downloaded version ever goes away, which I doubt, then I will look at Open Office.

Subject: Re: Office 2019 vs Office 365
My concern about the subscription model is that improvements sometimes mean compromises of accessibility. I waited to buy Office 2016 until it looked like obvious accessibility hitches had been fixed. It looks like Office 2019 is now also in good shape. I’ll be sorry when I have no choice but to migrate to 365.
Office 2019 is a one time purchase, but keep in mind that at some point in time Microsoft is going to stop offering updates for that when the next version comes out. With office 365 you continue to receive all the updates, so you’re currently running the most up-to-date code.
