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.

Lissa,

There is no way to deactivate it.  I'll sit back and see what kind of
beating I take for that; we could add a way to do so, of course.

Apologies if this has been asked before...is there a way to deactivate that
cursor locator thingy, the moving circle that pops up whenever you switch
views? I'm not sure what you call it, and it's hard on the eyes when I'm
quickly switching between views all the time. Thanks.

Lissa
