1. Enable IAccessible2 support and run NVDA.
2. Create a new Writer document.
3. Type a paragraph and format it with Heading 1 style.
Expected: Paragraph should be exposed with the properties of a Heading level x (x corresponding to the level chosen in the Styles). NVDA should say "Heading level 1" or the like, followed by the text.
Actual: Unless bitten by bug 74232, NVDA just reads the text, but not any heading info.
NVDA does speak the heading information in OpenOffice 4.1.0 snapshots. Maybe this helps.
This works for me in the January 30, 2014 4.3.0-dev build. Closing as WorksForMe.
Reopening. Same rational as for bug 74232

I can confirm that the 18.104.22.168 does not correctly assign an accessible role of 'heading'.
I also confirm that it has been corrected in builds of master.

Will check both bug 74232 and this bug against the TB 42 build of 4.2.1 branch and see if patch has already been back ported. Will close if they have.

Verified this has not yet been patched on the 4.2 branch.

This is still a problem in LibreOffice Version: 22.214.171.124

See bug 74232 comment #9 for a call for help that someone experienced with the code look into what is missing in the 4.2.x branch that makes stuff work in 4.3-dev.
4.2 is EOL - if I understand this correctly it's fixed in 4.3 and was just looking for a backport. No one did a bibisect or tracked it down in time. Closing as WFM.
If I read this wrong please set to NEW and explain what else can be done. Again 4.2 is EOL so that point is moot.
