How exactly VoiceOver announces things is not fully under LibreOffice's
control, but from what you write, this sounds like this might actually
be related to the role (or specific other properties) that LibreOffice
sets on the accessibility layer on macOS.
I'll take a closer look once I have access to a macOS development setup.
I have had the chance to analyze this on macOS.
The announcement of the "collapsed" status/attribute (you wrote
"reduced", but for me, VoiceOver said "collapsed" in an English-speaking
macOS setup) was caused by a state that was unhelpfully reported by
LibreOffice. That's fixed by this change (i.e. will no longer be the
case in the next LibreOffice version 24.2):
The fact that "edit text" an the cursor position is reported when
switching between paragraphs is probably because LibreOffice is
representing each paragraph as a separate object (text area) on the
accessibility layer, while Pages and Word on macOS are reporting a
single text area object for the whole page from what I can see.
That's nothing that's easy to change and there's already this bug report
to keep track of it:
