I have what I want.
But you are right, having an everything thing is not good either.

I agree to a point, however won't that introduce a bloated
situation ? I agree, but if we had the choice for 100 percent
of things, I personally would not like it as there is just too
much to take notes on etc. and the documentation would become
way too much for any one person to handle.
But if you've ever looked at the settings for the JAWS screen
reader, you will see that there are choices for many, many, many
things. There are also for NVDA, Windows 10, iOS, Android, etc.
No user likely ever even attempts to change well above 90% of what
comes as default on any operating system or piece of software, but
having the ability to do so if one so desires is built in to a
huge number of complex systems.
No user is ever asked to make 100% of the choices, either, as
that's the entire purpose of having defaults set. I doubt anyone
would ever have made it to day one of actual use with NVDA, JAWS,
Windows, etc., if at the outset during setup you as the end user
were require to make every single choice of configuration that the
software allows. It could take days, literally, for some
Defaults must be chosen. Defaults are chosen. Defaults will not
be to every individual user's satisfaction. Them's the facts, and
it's never, ever going to be any different, because it can't be
different. And that's why I find this whole discussion
exhausting, as I would think that each and every member of this

understand why the first three sentences of this paragraph are
