IMHO, this is more the NVDA fact than openoffice fact: OpenOffice can be 
interfaced with the Java Access Bridge so NVDA only needs to interface 
with JAB to access lots of Java app. Moreover , NVDA could start from 
the Orca OoO script. But I'm not sure this is the place to talk about 
this since NVDA is not part of the Gnome Suite.

Did you send an email to the NVDA author, and/or subscribed to the OoO 
dev mailing-list: They will better answer to your questions that I 
actually can.
