Re: Libre office again?

Jim Wohlgamuth

Hi there David!

I am running Jaws 18.

Jaws doesn't appear to work well in the writer program which is the word equivalent and in the excel program.  example, when I press the tab key within the excel program Jaws doesn't give any sort of feed back at all.

I believe it is the most recent version of Libre Office.

I believe sluggish is a bit icorrect, it just Jaws just doesn't seem to give me the same sort of feedback that I had when I was running Microsoft office. As I stated, it doesn't give me tab positions in writer nor does it give me the positions in the excel program.  Thanks much!

Jim, I have a few follow-up questions.

1. Which version of JAWS are you using?

2. What application within the LibreOffice suite is behaving sluggishly? Is it Writer, Calc, etc.

3. Which version of LibreOffice?

4. When is it becoming sluggishness? While typing in a document? Navigating with arrow keys? Navigating within menus, etc.
