Re: Anyone ever thought about making NVDA recognize NVDA or nvda as its own acronym?
We will have to disagree. I want to know when someone is being careless or sloppy, just as a sighted person does when looking at the screen. I know what NVDA is, in capitals or lower case It is read as if it’s a word but its meaning is plain.
And I don't think a screen-reader should encourage carelessness by hiding it.

Carelesness and sloppy writing are endemic today but that isn't the screen-reader's responsibility to redress.
That is indeed true in theory, but it sure
would be helpful if it did it in practice. I cannot tell you how many
times people on this very list write NVDA in its lowercase format. I'll
tweak the dictionary myself, as its a trivial exercise, but making things the
most functional at handling what is, rather than what should be, is a far better
design philosophy, period.
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
