Can I restore a wallet (Daedalus with Ledger Nano) WITHOUT the Ledger but with just the pass phrase of the Ledger?

Dear Forum

To enhance the security I am about to move my Adas from a Daedalus wallet to a new Daedalus wallet secured by a Ledger Nano S. Now I write a How-To document for my wife in case something happens to me. And as the Nano is a little complicated to use (to enter PIN and pass phrase) I wanted to know whether it is possible to restore the wallet (e.g. on a different computer) by installing the latest Daedalus > Add Wallet > Restore and then enter the pass phrase without using the Ledger?

I assume this should be possible but wanted to make sure :slight_smile:

Thanks and best regards
