I don't consider such minor inconveniences to be meaningful.  If you have to issue an extra keystroke and that's all, that is a minor work around and doesn't indicate how the program performs overall when compared with another.  I don't know how the programs compare for blind people but I read somewhere that Libre Office is updated in a more timely manner and is more current.  As a blind computer user who uses more than just a small number of programs known to be fully accessible, such work arounds are likely to be needed in this or that program. 
 
What, if any other differences, do you like about Open Office?

Hi,

I actually like open office much better. I tried libre office and found that I had to alt tab to get to the place where you choose what you want like a spread sheet or a text document.
