Using assistive technologies with LibreOffice

The Java Access Bridge software is required to enable certain assistive technologies within LibreOffice. There seem to be many instances where Java Access Bridge fails to install. This problem can be solved by taking the steps below.

Issue 1: Java Access Bridge fails to install when attempting to install Java Access Bridge 2.0.1 for Windows using the windows installer

Solution: The Java Access Bridge must be installed manually.

Follow these steps to manually install Java Access Bridge and set up LibreOffice to use assistive technology tools:

  1. Close LibreOffice by clicking File → Exit. If the Quickstarter is running in the system tray, right-click on the icon and choose Exit Quickstarter.

  2. Download the Java Access Bridge 2.0.1 manual install file. It's named '' and can be downloaded from

  3. Unzip the files into an easy-to-locate directory.

  4. Find the installerFiles folder and open it.

  5. Copy all the files in the installerFiles folder to your Java directory. If you have Java 1.6 installed on Windows 7 (64-bit), it is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\lib\ext

  6. Start LibreOffice.

  7. From the Tools menu, select Options → LibreOffice → Java. Select a JRE by clicking on the radio button to its left.

  8. Click Accessibility to view its options. Place a checkmark next to the 'Support assistive technology tools (program restart required)' option.

  9. Close LibreOffice by clicking File → Exit.

  10. Start LibreOffice.
