The Java Access Bridge  v2.0.3 incorporated into Java 7 runtimes since JRE
1.7u6 will now work with the Java Accessibility API on Windows to provide
LibreOffice (and Apache OpenOffice) support using Assistive Technologies
like JAWS or NVDA.

LibreOffice users on Windows OSs,  needing accessibility support are no
longer limited to use of a Java 6 runtime--and its dificult to configure
Java Access Bridge v2.0.2.   We can safely upgrade to a current JRE 1.7
release and activate the access bridge with a "jabswitch -enable" command
entered from an elevated permission command prompt, or using the Windows
Ease of Access Center. See these  activation instructions
from Oracle

Technical details of the issue are in FDO  bug 58995
<>   or Apache OpenOffice 
bug 121510 <>  .
A big thank you for some dedicated debug and patch work by David O!
