I haven't tried using kelp yet. I'll play with it and let you all know how it works.

Hi, Christo,

I find that open office works a little better than libre office. The
read-to-end function doesn't work in that either but I can deal with that.

Well, it works well upto a point, I would say. Quite a major drawback
is that you don't get formatting information with NVDA when you press
NVDA+f. I hope this is something that can be addressed soon. Another
drawback is that the read to end function does not work; it only reads
a paragraph at a time. Another small irritation is that, when you use
auto-numbering and arrow up and down your text, the number of each
numbered element is read twice.

So, while it is generally accessible, there certainly are usage issues
with it. I really wish the NVDA developers would pay more attention to
accessibility of LibreOffice, as it is also a free package and much
less clunky to use than the MS counterpart.

Kind regards
