can someone please tell me that how can i use entire document in libreoffice?
i wish that hear all of my documents, not only one line or one
paragraph and use keyboard to continue reading.
i use nvda screen reader on windows xp.

I wish I could be more help. I'm just starting to play with screen 
readers. I've been using the Orca screen reader that comes with Linux 
Mint 18, and I've noticed the behavior you mention. With some file types 
and programs, Orca will read the entire document as a continuous stream, 
but with others, like LO, it reads one line at a time.

I've noticed that the behavior depends on both file type and the program 
in which the file is loaded.

For example, my Orca will not read a plain text file loaded in Geany, 
but it will read the same file loaded in Gedit or LO, but only one line 
at a time.

Orca will read an HTML file in Firefox as a continuous stream of text so 
long as I don't click on the document on the screen. If I click on the 
document screen, it goes to reading only one line at a time, but since 
I'm in a browser, I don't get a cursor arrow to tell me which line is 
being read.

With any of the programs, I've found that once Orca starts reading one 
line at a time, I can just scroll down using the down-arrow key to 
continue reading.

I have found a way, through the terminal, to open Orca's preferences, 
but I just haven't had time to play with it in any more depth.

...and try as I might, I have yet to find a way to get Orca to read a 
PDF file, even a tagged PDF created in LO.

I have to believe that some of my issues are the operator errors of an 
ignorant noobie, so I'll keep working at it as time permits. If I learn 
anything new, I'll post it for others who may be interested.
