Bit clunky though. I imagine thatches program is not exposing the correct data for nvda to read.

To read the alignment in Libre office Writer,
Press alt then right arrow to the format menu,
Arrow down to “ alignment” and right arrow to the sub menu.
Now up and down arrow, some will say “selected” but the one that says “checked” will be the current alignment.

Best Regards, Jim.

Hi thank you, I did not realize that. Well, at least I wasn't missing
something obvious.

both openoffice and libreoffice dont support reporting alignment for
nvda screen reader.
i am not sure about jaws and libreoffice compatibility with jaws, but
i am sure that you cant read alignment information when using
libreoffice or openoffice.

Hi all,

I cannot seem to get NVDA to announce the alignment of text in libre
office writer, such as left or centered. I will have alignment checked
under the document formatting section of preferences but still nothing.
NVDA key plus F will read other attributes like font type or size but
still not alignment. When I go to other applications with text, like
websites for example, NVDA will then read alignment information. What
am I missing here? Thank you so much for any help.
