I though it time to re-title this thread as we (I) had sort of hijacked
the original post.

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.
Thank you for the suggestion. Actually, I was opening the exact same
.txt file in LO and Geany. I tried it again, and I discovered that, with
Geany, if I just open the file and sit and wait, the Screen Reader
eventually starts up and reads the file from start to finish, but if I
click the cursor anywhere in the file, the Screen Reader stops
completely, and I can't seem to make it start again. If I open the same
file in LO, it starts reading the file and stops at the end of each
line. As I move the cursor down the page, the Reader reads each line,
but I have to manually scroll down the page. So far, it has read
everything I have opened in LO.
I tried to get Screen Reader to read an AsciiDoc file, and it just told
me that the file was not a proper markdown file. I then took out the
AsciiDoc codes and replaced them with Markdown codes, and the Reader
read it fine.
I still haven't gotten the Screen Reader to read a .pdf file, no matter
how I create it, or what settings I put into it. Again, I'm sure this is
just due to my ignorance.
I'm not necessarily asking for advice, but I won't turn it away. I am
truly just learning the Linux Mint Screen Reader. I didn't realize I
even had it until this past Thursday when I discovered it quite by
accident. At this point, I'm just playing to see what it reads, and what
hoops I have to jump through to get it to read certain file formats. My
next test will be with LaTeX files.
I'm sure the day will come in my teaching career when I will need to
have files that are accessible to the visually impaired. I don't want to
have to reinvent the wheel when that day comes.
