[libreoffice-accessibility] Reading tables in Writer + NVDA

Dear team,

I'm training in LO with NVDA (last release). I'd like to read a
table with usual NVDA key combinations. It doesn't work. I know NVDA
detects tables and their characteristics, I can read cells vertically
with up and down arrow keys, but it's impossible to read horizontally
for instance with tab.

does anyone have a solution?

Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] Reading tables in Writer + NVDA

Hi Raphaël,

Yes with both NVDA 2015.3 and 2015.4 LibreOffice Writer table cells navigated across rows do not sound. But do sound vertically down columns.

But, sort of seems like the issue lays with NVDA.  Not certain of that though--anyone else with some ideas?

Anyhow, a say-all traversal of the table does sound across the rows. Also, watching with Accprobe a Tab or <Shift> Tab movement does expose the IA2 table cell role and cell content as IA2 paragraph, with its  msaa accValue displaying text of the paragraph.

Will poke at it some more, and may file a bug with NVDA or LibreOffice as seems appropriate.

Thanks for reporting.
