Subject [Bug 120009] New: OO 3.3.0 does not respond to Windows 7 built-in Speech Recognition
Date Sun, 17 Jun 2012 07:58:21 GMT

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120009
           Summary: OO 3.3.0 does not respond to Windows 7 built-in Speech
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Code
                OS: Windows 7
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: OOo 3.3
         Component: AccessBridge
           Product: ui

This is a usability issue (User Interface).  

While many non-Microsoft applications respond to the built-in Windows 7 speech
recognition engine, OO 3.3.0 does not.  

Thus, those working in environments were interaction with a keyboard and mouse
is not possible (presentation, teaching/training, chemical, nuclear,
biological, medical as examples), and those who are unable to interact with
applications through the use of a keyboard and mouse (see Americans with
Disabilities) are unable to interact with the Open Office software suite.

What works:
- Can paste text from the clipboard into the open document.
- Can scroll up
- Can scroll down
- Can page up
- Can page down
- Can close the document

What doesn't work:
- Cannot dictate text
- Cannot edit text
- Cannot select any menu item (File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, etc.)
- Cannot invoke any toolbar icon (print, save, center, left justify, font,
- Cannot position the cursor

Please note that third party software applications such as Firefox work with
Windows 7 speech recognition, so OpenOffice should also work with Windows 7
speech recognition.  

By the way, this bug report was dictated into Firefox using Windows 7 speech
