I can't believe I messed up again, "accessibleRole::CHECK_BUTTON" should
be "accessibleRole::TOGGLE_BUTTON". :(
But after digging a little I believe that we should leave it as is at
the moment. Also note that "real" radio buttons in dialogs already get
the correct role. See below for more info on why I believe we should
leave it for now.
I did a testbuild with on Ubuntu only changing TIB_RADIOCHECK to be of
accessibleRole::RADIO_BUTTON that updated the role of most toolbar
buttons that have a radio button type of functionality, for example the
align buttons in the formatting bar. I'm seeing some extra error output
in the terminal when they have focus, might be some missing pieces
surrounding the radio button group information, I did not look to closely.
After that I kept digging into other apps on Linux and it seems that for
example similar buttons in Nautilus use the role TOGGLE_BUTTON. Looking
at Mac I see some programs for example Pages that uses AXCheckBox (which
TOGGLE_BUTTON gets mapped to) for this types of buttons. On the other
hand TextEdit uses Radio group and radio buttons. A part of me still
think that radio button is more appropriate because that is the
functionality of these buttons, but there are more pressing issues when
it comes to accessibility in LibreOffice.

I gave a try but it failed since "accessibleRole::CHECK_BUTTON"doesn't
exist (and no "Role::CHECK_BUTTON")
I give up with this.

I'm very sorry I mislead you with a copy and paste error in my
previous message. TIB_CHECKABLE should have been TIB_RADIOCHECK.
TIB_CHECKABLE => Role::CHECK_BUTTON
TIB_RADIOCHECK => Role::RADIO_BUTTON
So it is not trickier than you thought.
I really need to start triple check my messages before I send them. :(
Again very sorry for the confusion.

Thank you Niklas for your feedback, so it's more tricky than I
TIB_CHECKABLE => Role::RADIO_BUTTON (and not Role::CHECK_BUTTON as
"CHECKABLE" may mislead)
Then, what about TIB_RADIOCHECK which contains "RADIO" and "CHECK"?
Considering all this, I'll let this aside since I'm just a newbie
this and so could easily make a mistake.
