Hi Michael, All,

(Apologies if this message has too many addressees; I'm not sure which ones I 
should drop.)

After some online searching, it seems that JAWS at least used to support 
IAccessible2, originally mainly for IBM Lotus Symphony. 
According to a tweet by Marco Zehe from December last year, JAWS handles 
Chromium and Edge via IAccessible2. (See 
https://twitter.com/MarcoInEnglish/status/1471523578805997570 )
Twitter is not an ideal source, but I couldn't find any documentation related 
to IAccessible2 on Freedom Scientific's website. They do have documentation on 
to use script access to UIAutomation: 
but nothing similar for IAccessible2.
This calls for some LibreOffice testing with JAWS; I hope to do some of that 
next weekend.

Best regards,

Christophe Strobbe
