Re: Strange problem with NVDA and LibreOffice

Michael Chopra

Hi. Yes, I read all of that and that appears to be the issue that I'm
talking about. According to that GitHub issue, this appears to be
something that needs to be fixed in LibreOffice, is that right?

Hi Michael,

Is this the issue you are facing: There's a lot of discussion
on that issue, but basically, you press NVDA+down arrow / NVDA+a to say
all, and NVDA only reads the first line or two of the document and stops?

If so, the workaround I found seems to be effective, is to load your
document, press CONTROL+END to jump to the end of the document, then
control+home back to the start, and then try say all.

Hi everyone. I have a strange problem. It appears when using the ?Say
command in NVDA with LibreOffice, the command does not work as expected.
use Caps lock as my NVDA modifier key and when I press it, normally it
would start reading from the current cursor positon to the end of the
document. It is not doing that in this instance. If I use the same
in Word, it works as expected.
I've been able to reproduce the issue multiple times and was wondering
what was going on here. I'm using Version: (x64 of LibreOffice. I
have a friend who was also able to reproduce the issue, we have both now
switched back to word because of it.
My question then is this, is it an NVDA problem or is it a problem for
LibreOffice to fix?
I'm also using the latest version of NVDA as well.
Thanks for your help.
From Michael.
