Re: Strange problem with NVDA and LibreOffice

Quentin Christensen

I believe so - but it's always tricky with issues like that, to know exactly where the problem needs to be addressed, so absolutely do keep raising such things here - and also do contact the other program developer - LibreOffice in this case about it as well) - the more they know about things which are problematic for their users, the more likely they are to make it a higher priority.  I think there was a linked LibreOffice issue (on LibreOffice's Bugzilla tracker) as well.

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?
