When Calc spreadsheet cells contain other than numeric content, the accessible event triggered on movement into the cell is not picking up the text as MSAA AccValue. AccValue is reported if the cell is reviewed with F2.

Niklas, *,

Bug 84854 is disrupting QA of 32-bit builds, but working as best as possible with 32-bit builds on Windows, I think you have go this close.

Still have an issue in gaining focus to the Calc tablecells, but once focused the are now presenting and sounding text values in addition to numeric.

I just tried using Calc from the master build Niklas provided in the link in one of his most recent messages on the accessibility mailing list. I am unable to get cell data and coordinates to read using Calc with NVDA using arrow keys.
Here is what I did.
1. Press f2 while in a cell.  At this point, NVDA does read the cell address and any data contained within the cell.
2. Press escape.
3. Use arrow keys to navigate within the worksheet.  I am still receiving no speech feedback.

I am more than willing to run any further tests/try other procedures to assist any of you.

Resolved WFM, believe Niklas's commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=55eca9dbb34aec8c435da91c0748453e3e097f1e for bug 74441 to not emit a "Zero" for blank cells, also corrected this.
