Description am_dxer 2015-01-23 21:33:21 UTC
When indenting the first line of a paragraph through the paragraph settings dialog in the format menu, orca says the text is indented when I use the "orca+f" keyboard command even if I am not on the first line of the paragraph. Orca should only announce this indent when on the first line of the paragraph.

Reproduced. Attaching a sample document.

In Pararaph settings I set first line indentation to 0.28". I also set before text indentation to 0.1".
This is what the screen reader says for characters in any line, pressing Orca-F: "Size 12, Family Name Liberation Serif, Indent 7.11 mm, Paragraph Style Default Style" etc...

I'm not entirely sure how it's supposed to work, is it fine that before text indentation is disregarded? It certainly announces the first line indent for each line (the indent is announced in lines after a line break, too).

Another interesting thing to note is that while in this particular installation I used imperial units to specify the indentation, the reader announces it in metric. Is that a bug, or separate settings?
