In "Format - Page - Borders" or "Format - Paragraph - Borders", "border style" option in the "Line" area is not accesible. The border styles (dashed, dotted, etc.) are not readed by the screen reader. As a result, it's imposible for a blind person to set the border style.
Border styles should have an accesible description.
Confirmed on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US with NVDA 2015.3 and
Version: 126.96.36.199 (x64)
Build ID: fd8cfc22f7f58033351fcb8a83b92acbadb0749e
Locale: en-US (en_US)
Borders:: Line:: Style -> Drop down list elements are not exposed to a11y AT renderings in IAccessibility2
Unknown about NSAccessibity and ATK handling, but likely the same issue.
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (a11y -> accessibility)

I can confirm this bug still exists using LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 (x64) using NVDA 2017.3 on Windows 10 1709 (build 17017.1000 Fast insider build just after Fall Creators Update).
I also tested with Narrator, however, Narrator has trouble with the whole dialog. NVDA can read most of this borders page except the border style, and also the colour dialog.
