I'll definitely report back on what I find and will try the
equivalent of object navigation on other screen readers. Otherwise,
I'll get assistance from AIRA.

Just for the record, I have written to SoftMaker
identifying the accessibility issues I've listed, so I'll
definitely try to remember to post again if I get a response.
I guess it's possible that object navigation might
help, but I'm doubting it based on what I can see. I can move
around using the standard TAB/SHIFT+TAB conventions in the choose
UI dialog, but nothing is spoken.
LibreOffice is a great product. The main reason I like
SoftMaker Office is due to just how much its look and feel is like
MS Office. For those who don't want to buy MS-Office, but who
still really would prefer to stick with MS-Office, this is as
close as you can get without being there, particularly if you can
see. Since the ribbon interface does not work with NVDA, that
means the look and feel will be slightly different going back to a
menu driven interface, but some seem to want that anyway, and you
can't get it in MS-Office.

If you think that
you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to
something else, without thinking of the thing it is
attached to, then you have a legal mind.
