strong textLibreOffice 3.5,0 accessibility technology tools malfunction
My NVDA 2011.3 screen reader does not work in LibreOffice 3.5.0.
In LibreOffice 3.5.0 Tools > Options > Accessibility the system fails to retain my selection tick the box at Support accessibility technology tools (program restart required).
The tick box accepts the tick when I am in the accessibility interface and the accessibility interface closes when I click on okay. However, my NVDA 2011.3 screen reader does not work thereafter and when I return to the accessibility interface, I find that the tick is no longer there.
My screen reader works in all other applications on my system, such as Microsoft Office 2007 and my Windows Internet Explorer 9 web browser.
I have the following computer system:
Acer Aspire 8951G laptop with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7--2630QM CPU @ 2.00 GHz and 8 GB RAM running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
I have installed the following Java runtime environment: jre-7u3-windows-x64
I have installed the following Java Access Bridge: accessbridge-2_0_2-fcs-bin-b06. I performed the installation by manually copying various files into Microsoft Windows systems folders and into Java folders in accordance with instructions published on the Oracle website.
I have double checked to ensure that the files were correctly copied.
I have also uninstalled and reinstalled LibreOffice 3.5.0, but to no avail.
Kindly advise what I should do to get my NVDA 2011.3 screen reader to work in LibreOffic 3.5.0.
Thanking you in anticipation

As @MagicFab notes above:
This sounds like a bug. Did this ever work, and if so with what versions ? Do you know of other users that have this setup working (or that had, and with what versions ?).
In any case, please file a bug about this problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!
If you do file a bug, please post a link to it in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".

Java64 doesn't work with LibreO, only Java32 do it.
LibreOffice is made available by volunteers around the globe, backed by a charitable Foundation. Please support our efforts: Your donation helps us to deliver a better product!
