Re: Two Janets was NVDA find command not working

Brian, I have noticed that your last-name pronunciation varies from one synth to another.  Inquiring minds want to know how the man himself says it.

This is one reason I really encourage people who want to use their given names to, at the very least, give the initial letter of their surname when setting up an account.

I can't count the number of Chrises and Mikes, to name but two, that I see within and across groups.  And remembering which Chris or Mike is which is a PITA. actually gives you the ability to tweak your Display Name, among other things, on this specific account page: 
You do, of course, have to log in or be logged in prior to going there.  Even if you choose a distinctive display name that's better than a single, dirt common (and that's not an insult, just an observation, as Brian is about as dirt common as given names come) display name.  Hence the reason I chose to have my full, real name as my Display Name.  But I could have gone with something like "Bri the Tech Guy" and it would still be very easy to distinguish me from all the other Brians who show up simply as "Brian" or with no display name at all.

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.
