install the fonts which is used in libreoffice.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA and Open Office

I also love both LibreOffice and NVDA. I even prefer LibreOffice over MS

But when my vision got worse and I started to use NVDA, I noted many
compatibility issues. The problems are there even with successively new
versions of both softwares.
The usability is difficult and is only possible with a lot of patience.
I don't understand why this is happening, where is the open source
"spirit"? Why the developers of LibreOffice and NVDA can't work together
to solve that issues?
If I had sufficient programmin knowledge, I myself would do all possible
to help.
At the moment, all we can do is wait for better new versions and,
meanwhile, build a supply of good patience.

Hi, Gene,

I am aware of the F6 and ALT+TAB keys to solve some annoyances" of
LibreOffice with NVDA, but it is not the case here. My problems arise
when I want to browse large documents using the same keystrokes I use
HTML (H for titles work in MS Word!). The F6 is a shortcut to move
between the "structure" of the application and is not related to the
NVDA command NVDA+SPACE used to toggle between browse and edit modes,
and this is really what I want to do.

Additionally, when NVDA "freezes" with LibreOffice, using ALT+TAB will
only show me that other applications are being read normally and only
LibreOffice are stopping NVDA.

What I call "annoyances" are a series of compatibility problems between
LibreOffice and NVDA. In various messages I listed only some of them,
but as I work with very complex spreadsheets, they slow down my work.

I like LibreOffice and also like NVDA and feel very disapointed when I
have so many "annoyances" using both together.

As these are open source software, I think the developers should make
all efforts to solve the compatibility problems.

I can't speak for Open office or the calc spreadsheet in Libre office,
but to get over the problem of documents in writer becoming uneditable
you can press the F6 function key followed by escape, pressing Alt tab
a few times wil bring you back to an editable document as well.

Best Regards, Jim.

In my experience, both OpenOffice and LibreOffice are, to say the
problematic with NVDA.

The most annoying behavior es when NVDA suddenly stops. If you press
ALT+TAB, other open applications continue to be read by NVDA, only
office is muted. I tried many things, like pressing F2 to enter and
edit mode (in spreadsheets), but the only way to solve the problem is
reinitialize NVDA.

In many spreadsheets, to make NVDA announce the cells contents after
you open the file is only accomplished by first pressing F2 two times
enter and exit edit mode.

In Writer, the NVDA+SPACE don't work at all.

In more slow computers, the problems are worsened. In a very complex
spreadsheet, Calc even stops responding for many minutes.
Other annoyance in Calc is the way NVDA reads the results: even if you
configure the cells to 2 or 3 decimal places, the whole number is
I noted also that NVDA has problems to read only the contents of each
cell: it keeps reading the contents of the formula toolbar and one has
to continually press arrows to move focus and force NVDA to read the
As I can't afford MS Office, I am still struggling with Calc.
Unfortunately, in each new release of NVDA there are many improvements
related to MS Office but none related to OpenOffice or LibreOffice.
So, if you can, use MS Office, or, if you have a lot of patience, use
