[libreoffice-accessibility] More on selecting text with a screen reader


Hi all,

I've now installed LibreOffice 4.4.1.2, but am still unable to select text by line in Writer using 
either JAWS 16 or NVDA 2015.1.

I'd be grateful for any more suggestions as to what I might try.

Many thanks,

Ed
P.S. Apologies David if you see this twice.  I didn’t spot when I replied originally that my 
message went to you instead of just the list.

Edward,
I am not using the current still release but am using 4.4.0 fresh (haven't installed 4.4.1 yet.) 
With this version, I am unable to duplicate the issues you're experiencing regarding selecting 
lines of text in Writer. I am able to hear text which is being selected as I use shift down-arrow 
and even shift-ctrl-down arrow when I select by paragraphs. I am using NVDA 2015.1. Would you 
consider installing the 4.4 release?

Hi,

I recently installed the latest still release of Libre office on a machine running Windows 7.

When I’m in the word processor, I am not hearing text read to me when I select by line using 
shift +up or down arrows.  I have tried this with both JAWS 16 and NVDA 2015.1.  I do hear text 
spoken when I select words or characters with shift left/arrow and shift control left/right 
arrow for the paragraph I am currently in, but hear nothing when I move out of that paragraph.

I have ticked the assistive technology option in tools/options/accessibility, and installed the 
Java Runtime Environment/enabled the Java Access Bridge from the Ease of Access Centre.  The 
rest of the program appears to work well, with text being read and menus being fully navigable.

Does anyone know if text is supposed to read while being selected, and if so, what I might do to 
fix this?

Many thanks,

Ed
