Dear LibreOffice community,
with the latest fresh relrease (5.1.4) on box with multiple lines (two or more) when I move between lines Orca says "0 paragraph content", "1 paragraph content"
Steps to reproduce :
1) Open LibreOffice
2) Open Orca
3) Insert slide with a presentation subtitle panel for exemple
4) Write lines
Result : LibreOffice send a number information on each line to assistive technologies.
Expected result : LibreOffice should send us the just the paragraph content as presented on screen (so without any number)
Reproduced with LO 184.108.40.206 in Ubuntu 15.10. Also reproduced with 220.127.116.11.
Not reproduced with 18.104.22.168 (paragraph number is not announced). This is a regression.
I believe this is from the big c23ab5eaed57cc3fb5860e26c591c73c5b22687b integration of IAccessible2
was just return an empty string
now it returns "Paragraph <num-whatever>".
Not sure if this is just a bad idea, or if we make use of this info elsewhere when we shouldn't.
Caolán McNamara committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Resolves: tdf#101003 don't give paras in editeng accessible names
It will be available in 5.3.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
As far as I can see the accessible name is set, and we just tell the a11y readers this info so we're not combining this name into any text and sending that. Its the readers that are using the a11y name.
We don't go around putting accessible names of "Button" on each button so I presume by analogy it's ok to go back to having no accessible name for each paragraph in these editengings as it was before...
