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.
