Re: Orca Thoughts on whereAmI: Quantity of Information

Hi Henrik,
Why make it harder and more complicated than it needs to be? It's good
with choises, but for that, we could add a user dictionary operated from
a dialog box with a read-only edit box  with the word the user selected,
maybe from a list box with Orca prompts and a text box where user could
type a replacement word. No need to search for config files with cryptic
names in strange locations.

What I get is:

"soffice.bin application Untitled1 - Writer frame
Untitled1 - Writer root pane paragraph This is a test. No

How about a general infrastructure that let's you substitute strings to 
reduce (or increase?) verbosity. We could provide a general 
low-verbosity look-up file, but users could add their own.

So the phrase " Writer" could be replaced by "Writer" or 
"O-O Writer". "Untitled1 - " could just be skipped when it occurs, etc." 
That way users can tweak their own verbosity settings in a simple file:

" Writer", "Writer"
"Untitled1 - ", ""
"Desktop window frame", "Desktop"

I think we can get quite far with a simple look-up file, but we should 
probably add some rules to stop orca from replacing " 
Writer" with "Writer" in a text body, etc.
