Description James Teh 2014-03-06 03:05:47 UTC
1. Open a new document in Writer.
2. Ensure Writer is set up to do spell checking for English.
3. Type "My tset" (intentional typo, without quotes) and press space.
4. Activate Tools menu -> Spelling and Grammar.
5. Obtain the accessible for the paragraph containing the document text.
6. Retrieve the text attributes for offset 3.
Expected: There should be some indication that there is a spelling error starting at offset 3.
Actual: There is no indication that there is a spelling error. The text attributes are the same for all of the text in the paragraph.

This makes it impossible for an AT to determine the misspelled word when using the Spelling and Grammar dialog.

Note that in the document itself, spelling errors can be detected using the CharUnderline:10 attribute (WAVE underline). While this isn't ideal (bug 124363), it's better than not being able to detect them at all as is the situation in this dialog.
