Re: [orca-list] Orca not announcing attributes

Interesting.  Further testing gives me this.

While it is saying "single underline" for characters I underline 
manually, I am being told by a visually oriented individual looking at 
saved documents via windows (saved as Word format), that a set of 
characters is double underlined, in a particular document.
Orca is still not reporting this to me, using orca-f on those characters.  
I wonder if this is some artifact of the save as word format.

Or, perhaps it does not announce double underlining?  Not sure how to 
cause Writer to create a double underline, so do not know how to test

Hi Luke:

It works find for me with Orca 2.28 and OOo 3.1 on OpenSolaris: when I press
Orca+f to get the text attribute information about where the caret is, Orca
speaks the "underline" attribute as appropriate.

If this doesn't work for you, there may have been some changes made somewhere
along the line to get things working.

In openoffice 3, Orca 2.26.1, Orca is not announcing underlining in writer.

If I enter the OOo specific settings, Go to underline, press the right
arrow, I find that the box is checked.

However when I move over underlined text, I get no announcement other than
the letter.

Is it an OOo configuration issue, an orca issue, a me issue, or something
