I tried it with NVDA version 2012.3.1 (looks like a date, I took it from
their About dialog).

What I wanted to mean is that the behaviour described in the bug is
reproducible with ia2: 

- create a new Writer document
- select Edit - Find & Replace...

NVDA reads the controls in the "Find & Replace..." dialog when
I position the mouse over the control, but if a travel the dialog using
the TAB key, NVDA does not read any control. On the other Windows
applications, when a control gets the focus traveling with the TAB key,
NVDA reads it.

I attached the VS2008 debugger to the soffice.bin process,
winaccesibility.dll and UAccCOM.dll are not listed among the loaded
modules. IAccesible2Proxy.dll, minHook.dll and nvdaHelperRemote.dll,
from NVDA, are loaded.

May I missed something in the NVDA set up, or is there something we have
to configure on AOO at runtime? I already checked Tools - Options...
- AOO - Accessibility - Miscellaneous options - Support assistive
technology tools (program restart required)
