This was already answered - let me (and the list) know if you still have

These were introduced as part of our work in StarOffice/
accessibility.  These applications, and potentially others as well, have
special regions of text in the content pane that are for "header" text and
"footer" text (which is printed at the top & bottom of every page). 
Specifically in the StarOffice/ Writer application, these
headers/footers are rendered in the content pane for every page (as you
scroll).  A screen reader will commonly want to skip over this text when the
user is reading the document as a whole across page boundaries - just as you
or I would reading visually.  The only way to convey this to the screen
reader (so it can allow the user to skip over it) is to make this clear with
new roles for the objects.
