When the user hits nvda down to say all in Open office writer, nvda will just read the current line that has focus. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with java and java access bridge. If thisn this isn't a nvda issue, I'm sorry.

This is also a problem in lotus notes.
When using say all, nvda will only announce the first line of the document.

This is in theory fixed by 78daa96. However, those changes also seem to cause !OpenOffice to crash in some cases on my system, so I won't close this ticket yet.

From...
Alan Yoder tempjayren@gmail.com
i've got a document i don't know how long it is and want to use read all
to read it. nvda only reads about a page, then i get to arrow down and
issue the command again on the next page.
the application in question is openoffice.

David Goldfield dgoldfie@asb.org says..

Alan,
I also am able to verify that this is happening.
I am using NVDA 2010.2 with OpenOffice 3.2.1.
I have a Microsoft word formatted file of A christmas Carol by charles
dickens.
I opened the file in OpenOffice Writer and the read all command is behaving
strangely.
First, as you indicated it doesn't read the document continuously but stops
at a certain point.
Secondly, the cursor doesn't seem to track during a read all. What I mean
is that, when I press the control key to interrupt the reading, the cursor
is poised at the beginning of where NVDA started reading rather than where
it stopped.

I have not tried to duplicate this with other or similar versions of
Openoffice. You could try the latest release candidate of OpenOffice Writer
or LibreOffice from the document Foundation but I doubt the behavior would
be any different.
I also haven't tried this with a later snapshot of NVDA.
Using Espeak..

I copied this over here as nobody seems to be looking at the support group and this will thus keep it for posterity!
Brian

Hi Brian, this tickets aplies not only for 2010.2 With the source code it isn't also possible to read more than one page with say all. So changing back to development.

Does anyone know the current state of play for this, with new versions of the products and of nvda and also Lotus Symphony being useed and recent questions about Lotus Notes in the support list, I'm now totally confused and yet i do not want to install one of the office suites if this problem is still going on.
Is it that the scrolling cannot be actioned correctly so the end of a page is seen as the end of the document?

The bug exists on OpenOffice 4.11 and current nvda next snapshot. I didn't test with LibreOffice but I think this ticket applies also to LibreOffice.

Is it safe to assume that this is solved now that Open Office relies on IAccessible2? CC @oaron

I believe LibreOffice still misbehaves with respect to reading more than one page at a time. Closing in favour of #4119, which is clearer about the current state of things and only discusses the IA2 implementation (not the defunct JAB implementation).
