Before I joined this email list, I had done all of that.  In fact, when 
I uninstalled jre-1.7, I also removed jre-1.6 because libreoffice chose 
jre-1.6 rather than jre-1.7 when the two jre's were on the machine at 
the same time.  Those were suggestions I got from the nvda-support list and I did all of that before I arrived here.

Please uninstall your Java Runtime and Java Access Bridge--and run the JWin
utility to install a JRE then correctly configure Java Access Bridge. It
doesn't do anything that can't be done by hand, but the manual set up is
error prone. Please get JAB configured correctly and then let us know about
activating LibreOffice Accessibility Tools and  using NVDA.

Also,  the Windows Registry configuration file that the NVDA project offers 
"OpenOffice_EnableAssistiveTechnologySupport.reg" is defunct.  It has no
effect on a LibreOffice installation since the registry keys in the .reg
file DO NOT EXIST with a LibreOffice installation--the code is there, but it
is orphaned when LibreOffice is built.

The setting for enabling or disabling the GUI in LibreOffice is recorded to
an XML based file "registrymodifications.xcu" in each users %APPDATA%
folder, on Windows 7 that would be

C:\Users\<you user

The stanza to toggle the default from false to true is:
<prop oor:name="EnableATToolSupport" oor:op="fuse"

It would be a challenge to use the .xcu file to toggle AT on/off--but that
is the current state of things with LibreOffice.  

So unfortunately you will need to use the <Alt>T, <ALT>O, A, A, <TAB>,
<Space> to perform the configuration--but with a valid JRE and JAB the
Assistive Technology tools should be functional for you.
