# A couple of years ago, I suggested the nvda and the orca developers
# create a inter-operability panel to make the 2 screen readers as similar

Some things are already similar enough. But there's no way in this world 
they can be exactly the same, as not only are the operating systems they 
run on fundamentally different, but the core functionality is also as 
fundamentally different. Orca has functions that NVDA does not have, and 
NVDA by its nature has functions that Orca does not have. BTDubs, that 
NVDA object navigation is for the birds. Just give me my Orca flat 
review. It's much easier to navigate. And they can keep their virtual 
buffering mess as well. Perhaps they do that because everyone else on 
Windows does it, but it will thankfully never fly in Orca.
