You have to make sure that the JRE, with its JAB activated,  has been
enabled in LibreOffice.

First,  enable the JAB.  Open a command window "run as administrator" and

"C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\jabswitch.exe" -enable

Second,  enable JRE support within a LibreOffice session:

A (for appearance)
A (for Accessibility)
A (for Advanced)
TAB into Java Options -- Checkbox "Use a Java runtime environment" -- space
to toggle ON/OFF  be sure it is checked
TAB into Java runtime environments (JRE) already installed -- Radio button 
"Oracle corporation 1.7.0_25  with accessibility support"
TAB out of the Panel to reach the OK button.

Then merge LibreOfficeAccessibilitySupport.reg
the attached/uploaded Windows Registry file that has this text:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Subject: RE: [libreoffice-accessibility] Libo 4.0.5 and

Hi, Stuart,
I'm actually using a 32-bit Windows 7 Pro machine.  As I've said, I've
4.0.5 to work but only if I use GW Micro's JAB installer, which comes with
Window-eyes screen reader.  If I install Java, even from the Web
site, accessibility with 4.0.5 is nonexistent and it works as though a.t.
has been disabled.
