And you can count on us too, Peter.   That
said....

1)  It would be good if it was optional.

2)  Would it help of it could be activated by a
key other than Shift - but which key?

Lissa,

Well, at least I can still count on Eileen for
support.  ;-)

Thanks for the additional perspective.

Not to begin the beating, :) but all the
transcribers here just agreed that it's just like
the Microsoft  paper clip, an unnecessary
cluttering of the interface that should be removed
as soon as possible.

More importantly, I noticed that this feature does
NOT work at all when my screen display is
white-on-black instead of black-on-white (set in
the control panel); from what I understand, most
low-vision users find white-on-black much more
useful to work with.

The transcribers also pointed out that low-vision
users often have their own magnification software
anyway and may not want to use this feature;
however, Eileen Curran said that it was a useful
thing to have, she liked it very much.
