Hi Steven

Personally long titles dont botehr me as a screen reader, the more
descriptive the better and I really dont need any company names
cluttering up the beginning of it, its easy enough to find out the
company's name from the site if I need to.

Perhaps its just me but when I search I like the title to
match the content heading it speeds things up for me. When I find
the search item that best describes what I searched for I want to go
to the site and hit the heading tab until I get the corresponding text.
