Hi :)
If someone here could post to the LibreOffice devs list

I am on that list and have discussed IAccessible2 with Michael Meeks (off-list).

and perhaps someone else to the nvda people? Then perhaps we could get them talking to each other? They probably don't talk at the moment purely because they are unaware of each other. People tend to focus in on their own projects.

Developers are a finite resource. Michael Meeks and probably a few others are already aware of the fact that screen reader users are waiting for an IAccessible2 implementation and that such code was going to be released as part of Developers are not very willing to start writing from scratch something that may be released elsewhere in the (hopefully) near future. I think we will be in a better position to draw their attention when the IAccessible2 code becomes available (or when we find out where they can get it).

Best regards,


Regards from
Tom :)

OK  I maybe mislead you  sorry.

I only spoke with OOo guys and I just made the assumption that IBM were
dragging their feet.

(snip /)

I think it's a shame that I can't use an open source solution that just
works out of the box,  I do Have IBM Symphony but I don't really like it.

I do like your program and OOo as well, but they really need so much
hacking about to get them working

(snip /)

I wonder if some of the developers of libri office have ever spoke with
any of the developers of nvda or vice versa?  I sound like I am having a
go,  I am not well maybe just a tiny bit Lol.
