Gene,

What makes you say this?  I'm not saying it's wrong, but this particular desire tends to come up occasionally and disappear for long periods of time.  I have not noticed it being requested with particular frequency or forcefulness by the community as a whole.

That being said, you are correct that if a feature request exists, or is created, for this then it is up to members of the NVDA user community to comment on it if they want it to get any traction.  I have said, over and over and over again, that the end users of NVDA have no idea how lucky they are to have a direct communication channel with the developer community for NVDA in the form of GitHub.  That is exceedingly rare, and gives the NVDA user community a voice that most user communities would give their eye teeth to have.

One cannot, and should not, use GitHub to create new bug reports or feature requests without due consideration.  But it is underused by the user community.  Even if the only thing you (the generic you) do is occasionally check if an issue exists for something of interest to you, and giving a "me too" comment that includes something of substance beyond just "me too," to them it ensures they don't slowly sink to the bottom of the priority ocean.  A "me too" alone doesn't say much, but a description of your own situation and why you want something, too, gives it weight.
