F12 is completely arbitrary and has no meaning outside of stupid Jaws. 
And to answer the question of people who speak different languages using 
different mnemonics, this is completely fair, but should be addressed by 
maybe having different default mnemonics for different languages, not by 
picking something completely arbitrary and illogical simply because 
someone else on an entirely different OS and screen reader has chosen to 
go down an illogical and counterintuitive path. Again, if you want to 
use an arbitrary illogical key combination to tell you the time, by all 
means do it, as there is nothing stopping you from making 
orca+control+alt+shift+escape do it if that's your thing. All I'm saying 
is to leave the logical mnemonic as the default, because most of us who 
use Orca regularly prefer it that way, as it's easier to remember and 
makes a lot more sense, and can be easily changed if we ever desire to 
do so.
