[libreoffice-accessibility] new to the list, with a question on spell check

Hi folks,
New to the list, and am trying to use libreoffice spell check.  Using orca
3.22, it doesn't seem to be accessible.  My thinking is that I'm probably
just missing something, so figured I'd check in here to see what I can
find out.
Once I've completed writing a document, and bring up spell check, the
dialogues appear to be empty.
I can't tell what word it's flagged, nor see my choices to correct it.
Thanks for any help.

Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] new to the list, with a question on spell check

Hi Mark,

The primary bug affecting the spell checking dialog is that it doesnt
mention the word currently being flagged as mispelt.

https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102044

You can look through the complete list of accessibility bugs at the
following link which is of the a11y meta bug.

Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] new to the list, with a question on spell check

Thanks for that info.  :)  Since these are known bugs, though, are they
being worked on?  While the links show me that they exist, there's no
report on what I can expect to see as far as solutions. If my spell check
doesn't work, I'm going to accidentally end up presenting someone with a
document with errors that I missed.  If Libreoffice spell check doesn't
work, does that leave me trying to find another alternative?  I'm stuck.

Re: [libreoffice-accessibility] new to the list, with a question on spell check

Hi,

Note that your screen reader should be able to speak mispelled words.
You're free then to review a doc, listen to your assistive techno,
moving to the mispelled word, pressing shift-f10 or App key to open
context menu, and choose a suggestion.

It's not perfect indeed, but fixing this would not be trivial I think.
That's why devs do not yet.

Regards,

In reply to this post by yphilips
It does not read with NVDA either. since OpenOffice is completely
accessible can we just borrow code from there?

I don't know. I'll check on NVDA I cannot remember and don't have it
until Wenesday. I'll do a feedback.
