This issue comes up from time to time, mostly on
blind related lists. Interestingly, when among sighted people who have a tech
question from time to time, usually if one knows the answer, they just give it.
why have these lists at all if one can't feel comfortable asking a question?
Now, if the same person asks questions repeatedly, and asks the same question
over and over again, it may be appropriate to refer him or her to a resource, or
advise that they may want to seek training, but i think that telling someone to
"Google it" when they occasionally ask a question is rather harsh.

(this did happen to me a few times) I will ask on a list and point to the
steps I took to troubleshoot the issue, and the steps I tool to try and figure
out on my own how to do what ever it is I'm trying to do with nvda, narrator,
voiceover, talkback etc.
quick query. Lately, I have realized that most persons subscribed to this
list, rather than going to Google or a search engine of their choice, seek
to ask questions here prior to doing this type of research. I’d seriously
like to know why, as I find this practice to be counterproductive. Why do I
say this? Because sometimes, the responses that are given are incorrect. Why
don’t persons read the NVDA User Guide, for example. It is well detailed.
Could persons explain this to
