I agree with this. I think sometimes we are expecting people to know too much about their systems. Some want to just use them, and not know what's under the hood.

So I would agree with a way for every screen reader to collect information for diag purposes with a single keypress.

All the best

Hello Brian and All,

the need for specificity when seeking assistance
On the other hand, people with little technical understanding also seek advice from lists like this one, for whom it is not so easy to collect this information or even to filter it according to its importance.

Other screen readers - such as BAUM's COBRA - therefore had a function to collect this information and make it available on the clipboard.

This could be realized rather easily with an add-on. However, this add-on would certainly not always and everywhere be available where it was needed.

This functionality should therefore be one of the NVDA kernel.

Just my 50 cents
