[orca-list] [Fwd: Default button of Orca]

Hey all.

Sorry to be a noodge, but I have a downstream request for us to change
the default button in Orca's main window. As I stated there, I
personally think that the default button in Orca's main window should
remain Preferences and not Help. But I'm willing to change that if
everyone thinks I should. The one thing I'd really like to avoid,
however, is different downstreams making different customizations. The
Orca user experience should be predictable and consistent. For both of
these reasons, feedback on this request -- either here or downstream --
would be appreciated. The downstream bug is here:

Hi all,

When orca gets focus it reads out "orca screen reader slash magnifier 
frame preferences button" and pressing return leads you to a complicated 
screen of options. My proposal would be to make the default button the 
help button so that pressing space or return might actually take you to 
some kind of information on how to use it, and would tell you about 
using the tab key to find other buttons and widgets and how to navigate 
between windows. etc.

What do you think? Would changing the default button be disruptive for 
those who already know how to use Orca?


Thanks guys! Take care.
