Description am_dxer 2015-01-23 22:00:40 UTC
When navigating with the "tab and "shift + tab" keyboard commands in the paragraph dialog box, orca does not always speak the control names. It seems to happen more likely when using the "shift + tab" command, but both seem inconsistant.

I can confirm this. I'm getting issues with check boxes, radio buttons and list boxes in this dialog (I haven't checked all tabs so I might even have missed something). The up/down fields seem to work fine though.

For me, the options in the up/down fields speak but the names do not always speak when they receive focus. Is this the behavior you see as well? This seems similar to what is going on in bug 88763 which I also reported. I added a comment similar to this one in that bug report.

Dear contributors, can you reproduced this bug with the latest version ?
I've tried with Orca 3.18 and LibreOffice 5.1.2 without any issues.
