Chromium-based browser local .desktop files (was Re: void-linux)

I placed


on a line by itself in a file I called /etc/profile.d/ 
and rebooted the computer. Chromium and Brave began speaking without any 
further intervention. This is after removing all my browser .desktop 
files from .local/share/applications and placing them in a new folder. 
Google Chrome is the only one that didn't speak at first, but I closed 
something and then closed the other pop-up that told me that it couldn't 
update Google Chrome to the latest version, then I got normal speech. So 
the desktop files are truly no longer needed for Chromium-based browsers.
