What is the nuance here between 说 and 讲? Does 她在讲什么 imply she is telling a story and we are asking what she is going on about, while 她在说什么 is just her talking and we don't understand what she is saying? I have heard some say 说 is more for feelings, or just speaking, while 讲 is explaining something in detail and more factual

Could this also be translated as "what is she saying?" If not, what, in the Chinese, indicates the word "about?"

To say that it's an ongoing action.

Thanks for that info. That character seems to get sprinkled everywhere, unexpectedly.
