Re: Libre office and NVDA

Walmir Schultz <wsautodidata@...>

I am not having these problems in only one computer, version or operating system...

I have problems in two different computers, In versions of NVDA from 2015.1 and Libreoffice since version 4and, last but not least, in both Windows XP and 7.

To me it seems that the slower the computer, greater are the annoyances.

You can't conclude anything based on one use with one computer.  That's why beta testing is done by a lot of people on a lot of different machines.  All we can say is that you have problems on the machine you use with that combination of software.  Since others like using this combination and don't complain of such problems, it is likely that either the problems you describe are your specific problems and not general or that they affect only a small number of users.  But generalizing about performance problems from one person's experience is not valid. 
There is nothing wrong with describing your problems and saying that that is your experience, but generalizing is not valid.

I do not want to repeat all the problems I have with LibreOffice because
I already mentioned many of them in this group.

But, with so many "annoyances" while using LibreOffice along with NVDA
and having to restart NVDA at every moment to overcome this issues, I
only find the word incompatibility to describe all the problems.

I am very sad to use this term, but maybe by doing so the issues will
receive some attention, maybe the same attention MS Office has. As
anyone can see, at every new version of NVDA there are many improvements
in regard to Microsoft software, but nothing related to LibreOffice.

I must say that without NVDA I cannot use a computer and I am very
grateful for that.

But, as I can use many, many other programs without any problem, my
conclusion is that NVDA and LibreOffice are not fully compatible.
