No. F12 does not mean time in any language. F12 may be a Jaws thing, and 
it may even be an NVDA thing, but it's far from a standard. Last I 
checked, time wasn't spelled with an f anything. Therefore, f12 telling 
me the time is stupid and illogical at best. I want my t damn it. T for 
time, t for tell, t for anything you like, but don't make me learn a 
completely stupid and illogical key combination simply because some 
proprietary power decided long ago that t for time was somehow 
insufficient. If you want f12 or even the page down key to tell you the 
time, by all means, please do configure Orca that way, for yourself. 
Those of us who have used Orca, and even those of us who came to Orca 
from somewhere else, fully appreciate the benefits of Orca's mnemonic 
keybindings over the stupid and illogical ones we had to learn in other 
screen readers just to get them to do basic things.
