Re: problem with NVDA and libre office

Quentin Christensen

While I don't have any better advice than everyone else for the specific issue, I would encourage those using LibreOffice to also report issues against that project as well.  A lot of things like this, where the information isn't being exposed to us, we can't do anything about - it needs to be a change to LibreOffice to expose that, before we can look for it.

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.

something obvious.
