[libreoffice-accessibility] Screen reader does not read impress presentations

Hi all, and used LibreOffice in its latest version and me and noticed
that my NVDA screen reader reads not impress presentations. Is it
possible to add support for reading the presentations with this screen
reader? Or is it possible to implement some method to read them? Thank
you very much for your answers.

Hi,

In order to read presentations written in Impress, you will need to export them to html from the file menu and read them with a browser.  Unfortunately, Impress doesn't have much accessibility support on either Windows or Linux.

For playing back Imperss presentation with Screen reader (NVDA or Orca) I believe Export to tagged PDF (rather than export to HTML)  probably provides best presentation fidelity--although embedded images and graphics may not have any annotation/description--that depends on the author adding them.

The authoring environment is reasonably well supported for keyboard navigation and screen reader use--but the structure of the frames and controls are sometimes unclear while nvaigating. Too much dependence on visual queues.  

Fortunately <F10> takes you to the Main menu, and <Sfhit> <F10> drops you back into the slide canvas. And once homed back to a know spot,   <F6> or <Shift>+<F6> move between the panels, supplemented with <Tab> and <cursor> movments- and a smattering of defined  shortcut accelerators. Found here:

Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] Screen reader does not read impress presentations

hello.
i use libreoffice with nvda screen reader and nvda does not anything
for me in impress.
only the menues are accessible and the presentation is not readible.
i think that accessibility in jaws screen reader is worse.
because i tried jaws with libreoffice and even writer was not
accessible for reading documents!
i think that libreoffice is accessible with jaws only if java and java
acccess briedge is installed.
but fortunately when using nvda i dont need to install java and java
access briedge and nvda works independently.
writer is most accessible with the minor problems for me in using
arabic and persian language about diacritics.
thanks so much for your attention.
