Is this a glitch with Orca and Libre Office?

Whenever I am reading long documents in Libre Office with the Orca say all command capslock semicolon, after a page or so, without touching anything, it will randomly jump me pages forward in the document, sometimes like half way through the file and then I have to scroll all the way back up to where it glitched.
I used to think that maybe this was an issue with Linux Mint MATE and Libre Office.
But now I also have another laptop running Slint and it does the same thing when using capslock semicolon to read all in a Libre Office document.
So considering that I am experiencing this in two completely different Distros, I am beginning to think it is some sort of interaction with Orca and Libre Office.
Have any of you experienced this? Not being able to read long documents in Libre Office because Orca jumps to some random place in the document?
Is there a way to fix this?
Or do you just use a different word processor? I don't mind downloading something new if thats what it takes.
