LibreOffice 4.0.5 was released today and I just wanted to make you all
aware that there are at least two accessibility related fixes included
in this release.
As Stuart announced earlier the Java Accessibility Bridge is now fixed
for Java 7. This is the first release in the 4.0-series of LibreOffice
that includes this patch. David did a great job with this patch.
The first patches from Boris will be in this release. It is a patch to
make VoiceOver follow the keyboard focus. This is a huge step for the
accessibility support on Mac. There are a more improvements to come in
later versions of LibreOffice, such as typing echo information about
text attributes etc. I do not know exactly when these improvements will
be available but they should be in LibreOffice 4.2-series which will be
released in the beginning of next year (~february).
Sorry to say that I do not know of any improvements for the Linux version.
