Well, since 4.2 is officially out I wanted to give its new Iaccessible2 code an official test spin 
with screen readers.  Here are my findings.

Previously, I've been using LO with the NVDA screen reader, using assistive technology support with 
the latest version of Java with the Java Access Bridge enabled.  However, I downloaded and 
installed 4.2, telling it not to enable assistive technology support.
I did this as I assumed that a.t. support is specifically for JAB/if this is not the case, please 
let me know.
Anyway, I also made sure to disable Java access Bridge in the ease of Access center and restarted 
my system for good measure, which is a 32-bit version of Windows 7 Professional.
I also made sure that I enabled experimental features in the advanced group from the tools menu.
Using NVDA 2013.3, I am unable to hear feedback when moving the caret through documents or when 
moving through menus.  JAWS 15 and Window-eyes 8.4 behaved slightly better, allowing me to hear the 
text as I used arrow keys to move through a document and menus were also read, though not dialogs.  
I have successfully used NVDA with Lotus Symphony, which is why I assumed it would work with LO.  
If anybody has some suggestions for additional things I could try, please let me know.
