(...) Here's what reported an user of Windows
Vista, with the screen reader NVDA.
At the 1st starting of LibreOffice, NVDA doesn't work. In options menu,
accessibility tab, NVDA says the tabs but then, doesn't read anymore the
dialogue. The user checks then the checkbox "support software for
disabled people". He asks now: couldn't this checkbox checked by
default? If not, it'd be important to give a way to a blind people to do
the above process with some audio help, as NVDA doesn't speak until this
checkbox is checked.
I once read or heard that the option "Support assisitve technology tools"
was not checked by default because if affects performance.
Unfortunately, I can't retrieve the source of that statement anymore.
Finally, note that libreoffice isn't accessible on XP, whereas it works
with Vista. I don't understand well why.
I have not heard of this before. How did you determine this? Is this based
on inspection with Java accessibility tools (Ferret, etcetera) or on
testing with specific screen readers? If it was based on testing with
screen readers, were the same screen readers and versions used on both
Windows XP and Vista? Was the Java Access Bridge installed on both systems?
(I suppose you'll say: "Of course!") Did you have the same versions of
Java on both systems?
Thanks for your answer, especially on the 1st point (the checkbox
checked by default).
