Re: Are there any extensions for LibreOffice?

Hello Russ,

I have used LO with Orca up to a couple of years ago. Now I haven't used my Linux distros for a while, so I don't know if the respective upgrades have changed things.

I don't know if it's written in Java...

Sory, i'm not Rui... lol!

Ciao, peace,

Hi Rui,

Do you know if LO is accessible to Orka on Linux?

Hi Gigi!

Yes indeed, everything you say is correct.  No doubt, some
collaboration between NVDA and LibreOffice (LO) seems necessary.

In fact, I am presently connected with a person in Germany who
is involved with LO development and who has a keen interest in
improving LO’s accessibility.  He has likewise noted that some
sort of collaboration is needed.  My problem is that I do not
have any contacts within NVDA to try to connect them with LO. 
I have said to my LO contact that I am willing to volunteer to
improve accessibility.  I just do not know how to go about it.

Do you know what I can do to foster this?

I'm afraid that there aren't any, but I really hope that the
accessibility of LibreOffice with NVDA will be improved in the
future, because more and more blind users are choosing this
suite as this is a very good free alternative to MS-Office.
Unfortunately this doesn't depend on the NVDA's developpers only.

I am using Windows 10, NVDA 2020.4 and LibreOffice 7.2. 
Are there any extensions for NVDA that improve its
accessibility with LibreOffice?  In particular,
LibreOffice has a spreadsheet application, Calc, that has
some material accessibility issues.
