Can confirm your issue after installing NVDA, while running LibreOffice 3.5.4rc2.
The NVDA screen reader functions as expected, but when working in LibreOffice, NVDA cursor controls 
are not correct.  Attempting to activate the accessibility support from Tools --> Options --> 
Accessibility checkbox results in LibreOffice message that "LibreOffice 3.5 requires Java Access 
Bridge 1.0.3 or later version to support accessibility."
Installation of the current Java Access Bridge 2.0.2 according to the manual installation 
instructions: and subsequent attempt to 
activate Accessibility support causes LibreOffice to crash.
There were two on topic Bugzilla reports, 46114 ( ) and 46422 which I've marked as duplicate. And 
related bugs 39803 - Make Libreoffice accessible by default, and 39956 - Implement the IAccessible2 
accessibility API [accessibility] that should probably be followed.  Several developers are already 
looking at this important issue--will need encouragement from the user community.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] inferior jre error message

has already come up in connection with jre-1.7.4 in libreoffice-3.4.4
libreoffice-3.5.2 and libreoffice-3.5.3 on a Dell computer when
libreoffice was started and I typed alt-t followed by o followed by a
followed by tab followed by space followed by enter.  This in theory is
supposed to support assistive technology and has for other nvda users but
failed for me on a windows7 box with the already-mentioned version of jre
as well as both javaaccessbridge-2.01 and javaaccessbridge-2.02 not at the
same time and a registry patch that enabled other nvda users to get it all

When the error happened in libreoffice-3.4.4 the wording was a little
different stating that my jre was defective.  In the middle of all of
these processes out of desperation I uninstalled all jre's from my
windows7 box and reinstalled the current jre since other readers of
nvda-support email list thought two jre's could be confusing libreoffice
and javaacessbridge.  That did not help either.  After this, it'll either
be lotus symphony or gag Microsoft office I'm using.
