Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] Using Libre office with the Jaws screen Reader


Chantal,

For heading styles you can press control 1 for a level 1 heading, control-2 for a level 2 heading, etc. You can do this for heading levels up to 5.

When you read the line of text with the new heading JAWS will verify your change by announcing the heading level before the line of text, just as it does for Web pages. As an example, if the line of text contains a level 1 heading and contains the text "hello" you would hear, "heading level 1, hello."

For some reason pressing insert-F to speak the font and formatting dialog does not correctly identify the correct heading level. I will alert Vispero about this bug.

Opening and saving documents is similar to other text editors. Ctrl-O can be used to open files, ctrl-S for saving, etc. Let me know if you need specific help with this.
