And even if the NV association had any interest in branching out, I
suspect they'd be more interested in porting NVDA than improving other
projects, and depending on how much NVDA depends on Windows specific
APIs, that might just lead to slower development on the Windows side
without providing a decent Orca alternative under Linux. Granted,
these things are way above my weight class as far as development is
concerned(I know how to program and I have a Computer Science degree,
but I'm still only at the level of terminal applications or writing a
backend someone else might could connect to a GUI), but I suspect
something like a Graphical screen reader requires a level of
integration that isn't friendly to cross platform support(Hell, as I
understand it, Orca doesn't wrok well at all in desktop enviornments
other than Gnome and Mate).
