I'm finding all of this fascinating. In the past couple days, I have 
also discovered the screen reader that came with my Linux Mint 18. I've 
been playing with it on various file formats. I created an HTML with 
AsciiDoc, and it read it quite nicely. It also read an .ODT file without 
difficulty. For some reason, it would read a .TXT file opened in LO, but 
not in Geany, and, it didn't read PDFs created with either LO or LyX. 
Now, these were quick and dirty tests without any tweaking of the files 
or any settings, so these experiences are not at all the final word. I'm 
sure I can make everything work properly as I learn more, but this does 
indicate that some methods will require more work than others.

I am not using Gleany, but check the encoding used by LO and Gleany as there are different ways to 
encode a txt file. The more common encoding schemes are variants of UTF-8 and ISO-8859. For LO you 
can show the encoding by going to Save As... and check Edit filter settings. In Gleany there should 
be some sort of drop-down menu to select the encoding you want.
