[libreoffice-accessibility] Starting From Scratch with VoiceOVer in Libre Office


Hello.  I am a writer who has been using Libre Office for a few years.  I appreciate it!  However, 
I now have to learn to use VoiceOver on my Mac.

First:  Can anyone share a good guide for using VoiceOver in Libre Office?

Here is what I have tried, and my results so far:


I have a Mac Mini, Yosemite updated to most current.

The read all command only seems to read what is visible on the screen. When it works at all.

Tricks tried:
NumPad is turned on
NumPad 9
NumPad Zero 5
NumPad Command 3
NumPad Control 5

Quick Nav on
Quick Nav off
With Rotor on Paragraphs

With Track Pad turned on
Two Finger Flick Up
Two Finger Flick Left
Two Finger Flick Right
Three Finger Flick Up
Three Finger Flick Down

Control Option B
Two Finger Flick Down

None of the above commands seem to anything. 

Also tried Item Chooser and Find.It would find an item. Then, I'd press enter, or double tap, and 
VoiceOver would begin reading at the beginning of the document again. When it reads at all. I'm 
still missing something. Or a bunch of somethings.

And why, when I want it to read a document, email, or whatever, does it keep wanting to edit text 
instead of read it? Why does it refuse to read more than one character at a time regardless of 
rotor setting?

What setting is messed up?

Yes, eventually, I'll need to edit. I need to read it first though. More than a letter at a time. 
Or more than a screen at a time. And jumping back to the top of a document won't work if it's 360 
pages!

Today, I tried opening a new document and just writing.  It didn't work very well.

Thank you,
