Hi Richard,

I quickly tried with the current development version of LibreOffice and can reproduce the behavior you describe using the NVDA screen reader on Windows.

The value is changed when pressing the up or down key, but the screen reader does not say the new value, so that looks like an accessibility bug indeed. The value is spoken when directly typing a value instead using the keyboard, e.g. pressing the key "3".

I have created a bug report in Bugzilla:

(As a side note: This works fine when using the "gtk3" VCL plugin in Linux instead.)

I am using JAWS 2020, Windows 10 and LibreOffice 7.1.  It seems that
throughout LO spin boxes do not function correctly.  For example, if I am in
a spreadsheet (Calc) and I go to /Format/Cells/NumbersTab, General, and then
tab a few times to the "Decimal Places" spin box - using my up/down arrow
key does not change the value; or at least JAWS does not speak the value.
This spin box behavior seems to happen throughout LO.  Is there some trick
or is this a bug?
