Do they have a bug tracker you can post issues in so they can get that fixed? That was the same issue I was having with libreoffice. But I couldant find anywhere on the website to post issues.

I have tried Libre office both with NVDA and jaws. In both cases it's
got a nasty habit at least on my machines of loosing focus, a lot,
like coming out of menus, saving documents, it's quite frustrating.
I've since uninstalled it.

Hi, Dean,

I tried libre office but didn't really care for it too much. I think open
office works better.

I read the article but does that mean Libera Office will be more accessible?

I tried it earlier this year and found I could not use the spreadsheet at
all with another screen reader. so I went back to Open Office.

I looked into this last year. How to Geek has a good comparison

Basically LibreOffice has been more frequently updated and has a slightly
more "classic" (Say Microsoft Office pre the ribbon) look and Open Office
has a few more side bar options.

In terms of accessibility I'm not sure which is ahead though being updated
more often, if you encounter a problem, it might be easier to get it
addressed in LIbreOffice.

Note that there is also Open365, an online office suite based on

Essentially it looks similar to LibreOffice but runs in a browser. As you
can probably guess..... steer clear of that one ;) I tried it a month or so
ago and while I could get around the system tray component, the actual say
word processor was unusable. Even aside from accessibility issues (which
were enough to nix it on their own - it was sooo slow! I couldn't put up
with it on that basis alone
either. I'm on ADSL 2 and while I wouldn't boast it to be the best
connection in the world, it's not THAT bad that it should have made that
much difference.

Kind regards

I know that it was asked before, but versions are updated regularly
and well, now I'm searching for the option... apparently LO is the
best, but I don't know...

So, any info will be apreciated... note that I can install LO and OO
simultanously, so if you can say what is the best for what option...
