I've successfully installed Libreoffice 4.2 RC2 on a Windows 7 32-bit machine. I've gone into the
advanced group in the Optiond dialog and enabled the Experimental Features checkbox in order to use
the Iaccessible2 code. I've also unchecked the "use Java Access Bridge" option from the ease of
access app. Here are my findings.
The most positive results are with NVDA 2013.3. Accessibility appears to work out of the box
within Writer documents, menus and dialogs.
However, Writer consistently crashes when I load it using JAWS 15 or window-eyes 8.4. If anybody
else has either of those screen readers, could you confirm this?
