I agree with Roman, but it might be a problem for a disabled user do 
have to search BSA until he finds ACCESSIBILITY at UI?

One way would be to add it as Sub Component to all relevant Components, 
or of course, adding a component.

May be we can get advice from accessibility at global.libreoffice.org?

Best regards
