I was writing a basic explanation on how to install NVDA today, and was wondering if the keyboard layout shouldn't be part of the welcome dialog. This is a setting that impacts your experience a lot when misconfigured.

I use laptop layout with capslock on both laptops and desktops. With my previous screen reader I did the desktop layout with Fn-key thing.
I suppose people want one layout to work in both scenarios, but they don't have a strict NVDA key preference.
