This might not be true, as there is an unconfirmed bug report
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=122839 "VoiceOver not able
to track writing cursor and read entered text"

For people reproducing the bug: please add your comment to the bug
report in bugzilla (bug reports on mailing lists have usually no
visibility to developers - they tend to be too busy to follow every
message on every mailing list).
