Re: OpenOffice?

Symphony was the core code which libra and Open are based around as far as I know.
Jarte has issues with tables.
I recently was sent tabular word doc and it ended up as one big lump of text, which in some ways is fine, but I hate to imagine what that might look like when printed out in Jarte.

Believe it or not even word 2002 seems to work in windows 10 as long as you put sp 3 in as well.

I said this before. I personally feel that Microsoft makes changes for changes sake in office suites. OK the newer file formats can be useful but to me they are just a bolt on and ribbon menus were a step back for people who want to work logically from hierarchical menus.

Hmmm I really wish those things worked together.
The way office is going, its causing loads of issues, the best version seems to be 2007 or 2010 as long as you don't have to uninstall it.
I have jarte for a wordprocesser.
I am unsure but there was a program called lotus symphony, true thats not developed anymore but if that works well.

For my use, OpenOffice is even worse than LibreOffice.

It appears that those suites and NVDA have some form of incompatibility
because when used together, both become unstable.

In LibreOffice, working with a very complex spreadsheet for some time
causes NVDA to stop talking (using F2 to reestablish things don't work).

In some cases, Calc totally stops responding.

Calculations with very large chunks of data (as adding cells of wntire
columns become VERY SLOW).

Change spreadsheets with PAGE DOWN and PAGE UP have strange results:
instead of speaking the name of the spreadsheet, sometimes NVDA becomes

NVDA+SPACE don't work.

And so on...

I used MS Office some time ago in a friend computer and was amazed how
well NVDA and MS suite function together, but I can't afford buying
Office :(

Does OpenOffice not need Java accessbridge now?

It used to and I found it less than reliable.
