Sorry--no seat of JAWS or Windows Eyes to test against. But, NVDA functions
"out of the box" with LibreOffice exposing accessible events mapped to the
the Linux Foundations IAccessible2 v1.3 API. The project does not bridge to
MS UIA. And the old Java Accessibility API "Java Access Bridge" was stripped
out when implementing the native IAccessible2 mappings.
Of course there are issues--announcing cells for tables in Writer, and the
main content dialogs not sounding, "say all" top to bottom reading, etc.
but overall is reasonably usable.
Theoretically, JAWS and Windows Eyes provide the same level of support
reading LibreOffice exposed IAccessible2 events--but I can't verify.
