PostPosted: Wed Aug 03, 2022 4:44 pm    Post subject: New VoiceOver support: Fixes for crashing and hanging bugs

We have fixed the following crashing and hanging bugs that would occur when using VoiceOver:
  • NeoOffice would sometimes hang when a column or row is selected in Calc due to the Calc code adding a huge number of native accessible NSViews to the document's native window
  • NeoOffice would sometimes crash when closing a window due to our asynchronous code using disposed C++ accessibility objects
  • NeoOffice would sometimes hang for several seconds when our asynchronous code would remove a large batch of native accessibile NSViews
You do not need to wait until the next release to get these VoiceOver bug fixes. You can get the fixes now by downloading and installing the one of the following test patches:

NeoOffice 2022.1 Mac App Store:

NeoOffice 2022.1 Professional Edition:

Important warning: This feature is still in the experimental stage. We had to make significant changes to LibreOffice's code to run within NeoOffice's multithreaded event dispatching code so we expect that there are still undiscovered hanging or crashing bugs. If you encounter a hanging or crashing bug while using VoiceOver or any other macOS accessibility features, feel free to create a bug report in the NeoOffice issue tracker. It would be very helpful if you can attach a crash log or, for hangs, a sample from the Activity Monitor application to your bug report.
