Re: NVDA announcing shortcut keys
I can state an opinion about what should be the case without
always qualifying it by saying something like others may disagree,
etc. This sort of thing is done constantly. See editorial pages
and opinion columns for innumerable examples. When I write in
such a way, I assume that it is generally understood that I am
expressing an opinion.
This is not a question of taste, usual or not. It isn't a
question of I like chocolate ice cream. It is a question of which
better serves users.
Aside from that, Openbook does not automatically save settings.
Window-eyes didn't. I don't think Kurzweil does. These designers
may have had good reasons for what they did.
In the case of Window-eyes, the reason was so that users could
experiment with settings, then not accidentally have them be
saved. I suspect that also, in the cases of all three of these
programs, this was done so users could change settings, then
change them back if the changes were intended to be temporary such
as temporarily changing a contrast setting. It was evidently
intended that these settings would not be accidentally saved on
