Is the libera office spreadsheet readable with NVDA? I tried it with another screen reader and could not read it at all. I could read the Open Office spreadsheet but do have some problems with the word prrocessor and the other screen reader.

libreoffice is accessible and you dont need to install java-java access briedge to make it accessible.
just download libreoffice and enjoy it without any additional program, no cust, open source, very great project, and support for more than
110 languages.
i am shure that libreoffice is the best selection!
thanks so much for your asking and god bless you.

The Apache project limps along, but the 4.1.2 build should suffice for
