Subject changed, branch to chat if you want.
First, Shaun, thank you for making this suggestion, and I mean that.  Next time, though, please just start the topic there.  This topic is locked after this message:

These conversations, while they can have great value, are not, in any way, shape or form, NVDA-related in any meaningful sense.  I'm not going to quote the group rules, which everyone gets on a monthly basis, but the group description, which really is an excellent summation of what's on-topic for this group:
NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA) is screen reader software.  The central purpose of this group is discussing how to use NVDA.  This includes configuring NVDA's settings or familiarizing oneself with its modes and commands.  Discussions about which programs are accessible using NVDA, NVDA add-ons, NVDA tutorials and documentation, and configuring synthesizers or Braille displays for use with NVDA are also permitted.

I have granted a lot of latitude recently for topics that had, as their beginning, questions regarding whether something was accessible with NVDA.  Once that's answered, ideally, all meta-conversation like this one and others like the Oracle topic that spawned this one, the BitLocker topic that kept going and going and going after the accessibility question had been answered many times, and others need to be conducted on the Chat Subgroup, which is precisely what it exists for:  talking about any topics its members wish that are not appropriate for the main group.  Most topics there are technical in nature and discuss how other programs are used, and similar, but where NVDA is not really what's being focused on, but those programs themselves.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
