Open office works fine for me as long as I am not in Impress. It
works better, by an order of magnitude, with Orca than it does with
Jaws or even NVDA. It was Eclipse that kept crashing on me but, as
you said, that is for another list. Eclipse is in SWT, you see. I
was under the impression that Open Office and now, Libre Office use
the swing classes for the portions of the application that are written

I think and hope you'll find that Orca+Eclipse works well, but that's
beyond the scope of this list.
If this statement applies to LibreOffice crashing:
I even downloaded it and set it up on my Vinux
3.0 machine running Orca 2.3? (running 2.91.3 now, sorry) but ran into
trouble. It kept crashing on me.
That might be this bug:
I've not re-built LibreOffice since my last comment. So perhaps the
issue is indeed gone now. I shall have to re-check.
Speaking of that bug... It raises a related question I've been
wondering: At the moment, how much -- if any -- of the accessibility
work (features and bug fixes) done by the OOo a11y team is getting
incorporated into LibreOffice?
would like to apologize to the list and take back my uninformed post.
I promise to be less gullable in future about such things.
Alex, don't be silly. <smile> Discussion lists are for discussion and
sharing of information. I don't have all the answers either. And you
have nothing to apologize for.
