When i move cursor on the group of switches, nvda firstly reads the text

If i want to hear this information, i can read it. My idea is, that this
feature can be implemented in object presentation menu.
The text you hear for the group or property page is classified as the "description" of the window. Thus, you can disable it by disabling "Report object descriptions" in the Object Presentation settings dialog. Alternatively, you can just hit NVDA+tab to interrupt speech and read the currently focused control.
