Potato, po-tah-to.  This is the kind of hair splitting I'm not even going to try to address.  It's about the mechanics of getting the same result.  The exact how is not what's relevant here.

Most blind users can read directions written for the sighted and know what click, double click, right click, left click, bring up the context menu, etc., mean in terms of the method(s) they use to do what the point and click equivalent does.  It's not the how that's important, it's getting the desired action to take place.  Most, with the exception of complete neophytes, already know this.  And for those who were formerly sighted and were former "point and clickers," they instantly know what the "to keyboard" translation is.

If you think that you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to something else, without thinking of the thing it is attached to, then you have a legal mind.
