Hi. I wanted to report that I have been using LibreOffice off and on with JAWS 2020 with good success. I have recently used JAWS with LibreOffice version 7 and it works quite well. Admittedly, you're going to get the best accessibility experience with Microsoft 365 but LibreOffice, at least Writer and Calc, will work reasonably well with JAWS 2020.

Hi Chantal,

Sorry, unfortunately JAWS has no support for the IAccessible2 based
accessible event API that is implemented in LibreOffice.  You would have to
shift to the NVDA screen reader on Windows, or to a Linux with its ORCA
screen reader to use LibreOffice.

If you remain with JAWS, it has support for the Microsoft UIA API used in
later Office product offerings. As does the NVDA screen reader.
