Hi, Stuart.
Thanks for this note.
To show you where you can see help tips not being read, access one of the pull-down menus, such as the Edit menu or the View menu. Once you're in that menu, arrow down through the items. NVDA will read the item but not a help tip, which I thought I remember from previous LO versions.

I just loaded NVDA 2015.1, and working with LibreOffice with local help installed.

The "Extended tips" are sounded by NVDA regardless of the check-box setting on Tools -> Options -> 
General: Help

Seems like they are all there, but is there a specific panel that you recall a more complete help 
sounding for?
Let me know and I can check for it.

Hi, Stuart.
After trying to figure out what might have been causing the problem I did check those settings a 
while ago and both options are checked.

Hi David,

Please check that you have the "Extended tips" check-box selected.

Tools -> Options -> General  in the Help section.  A check-box for "Tips" on by default, and a second 
check-box "Extended tips" is off by default.

Select that active, and you should have more complete descriptions pulled from the offline help
