Description Robert Großkopf 2020-07-28 14:01:00 UTC
Open an empty Writer document.
Write some text with one wrong written word.
Press F7 for the spelling dialog.

If you have reached the field "Not in dictionary" after pressing many tabs or shift+tab you could hear the content of the wrong sentence. But there won't be spelled the wrong word. 

Remember: people with screen reader don't see the bold red font. And the screen reader won't recognize it, too. So they couldn't use the dialog in a right way. They could only press "Correct".

What platform/OS and screen reader is this?

Works OK for me at least with Orca screen reader on Linux and the gtk3 VCL plugin (where native gtk3 widgets are possibly used).

For an "fff" text, it reads this when tabbing into the field:
"Not in dictionary panel. Not in dictionary text fff"

Could be I don't understand all the voice tries to say, but:
I could only hear the whole sentence I wrote, not the special wrong written word. So I have to guess what is written wrong there.

Thanks for clarifying, same behaviour here (I missed that when reading the bug report the first time.)
