So I just opened a document in @libreoffice Writer, (Still, [version info](http://ix.io/2PMY) on Arch Linux (latest as of this afternoon), and could not read the document with Orca. Rather disappointing. All of the other UI elements are accessible as far as I can tell, but the main point of the LibreOffice Writer program, editing a document, cannot be done by blind Linux users.
@devinprater Hi Devin, does any of the info here help: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Accessibility/Accessibility-dev#Orca
@libreoffice I tried running `export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 GTK_MODULES="gail:atk-bridge"` and opening Libreoffice Writer again, but still cannot read any text.
@libreoffice Well that's different. After a restart, and exporting those vars, it works. I'll try putting them in .profile or something and see if that works.
@libreoffice Okay, so that works, set it in .bashrc. Interesting that it wasn't needed for LibreOffice 6, but is for 7.
@devinprater interesting. It will probably not be relevant right now, since I have no computer to put Linux on ATM, and besides, i wouldn't even know which distribution to pick as a blind user without sighted help, but for future reference, if I want to run @libreoffice on Linux, I'll keep that in mind.
