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.

Most of us including myself are lazy. Ok, I'll google for
something but if I just can't find the answer or the pages are
10 years old (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,
A 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 me?
