Re: [orca-list] Orca and openoffice, which version of OO

I personally like using the OOo dev version.  I use that devel version
in Arch.  Back when I was having all kinds of problems with the
navigator and the like, Joanie indicated she was using a testing build
of OOo; then I discovered this dev version which is a snapshot of a
3.4 something.  The navigator works beautifully now.  I still have a
problem occasionally at start with Orca losing speech and I have a bug
filed along with a debug dump but no further feedback on it.

Anyway, in general, I have good luck with the Arch dev version.  From
an a11y point of view, that's the one I want to keep using.

I am encountering some issues with openoffice again, I think
probably caused by the interaction from orca.

Anyway, before going into details of the issues, I remember that
previously when dealing with openoffice it was suggested to try some
of the testing/development versions. My question is which should I
try? Archlinux has packages for openoffice 3.2 (the latest stable
release) openoffice 3.3 beta (the latest beta release) and
openoffice 3.4 development build (I am not quite sure what this one
is, if its the very latest build from the 3.4 branch or whether its
a snapshot taken every so often, etc). While I think I have the
space now for all three, I just wonder should space become
restricted which one should I prefer.
