Hi Markus

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with LibreOffice. There are quite a few issues surrounding combo boxes, list boxes and pop up buttons in LibreOffice. Even though the program has had some great improvements in the last year issues with list boxes and pop up buttons still remain to be fixed.

I will try to guide you through a few steps in a hope that you at least can get something exported.
I suppose it is the odt2braille extension your talking about?

Go to File - Export to braille
Press tab three times to get to the first pop-up button
Press the down arrow twice to select PEF format (sorry VoiceOver does not announce anything but the PEF is last). At least for me the extension seems to save my last setting. Also note that PEF seems to be the only of the three available choices that disables the next pop-up button so if pressing tab takes you to a check box then you have selected the correct format.

The rest of the settings in this dialog should be accessible from the VoiceOver-cursor.

Let us know if you can make it work. I'm getting some exception with liblouisxml that I haven't looked into but that might be something with my specific setup.

Let's hope that the improvements to Windows accessibility, that is currently going on within the project, will rub off on the accessibility improvements for other platforms as well.
