Thanks for this David. I was the original poster and I didn't know about the "Optimize for Blindness" either. I've looked through it and changed the time to 15 seconds. I also found this Java textbridge option but did not know what to do with it.

Anyway, there was lots of good stuff there and for the deaf, and others, as well.

Thanks David,

Out of curiosity, how long do they stay open by default? This is the first I'd heard of an 'optimise for blindness' page. I suspect that it's a well-kept secret for most blind computer novices. Does the information about the 'Optimise for blindness' page need to be more prominently available to blind people themselves? If so, does anyone fancy writing an overview article on what's on the page, for posting on BCAB website?

Best,
Clive

Hi David,
to click a notification balloon press numpad slash (I presume it's CAPS LOCK+8 on laptop layout, but haven't tried this.)


To modify how long balloons stay open:
1. To open the "use the computer without a display" page of the Control Panel, type optimize for blindness into the Start menu search box, and press Enter. Alternatively, open the Ease of access center either using the Start menu search box or by pressing Windows Key + U, then Tab to the Use the computer without a display link, and open it.
2. On this page there's a “How long should Windows notification dialog boxes remain open?” combo box. Set the time that you want, and then Tab to the OK button and press it.

David.

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to run efixpro to find some virus or whatevber. The program has found something but I need to click on a balloon. Could somebody please remind me how?

Using Windows 7 and Jaws 16.
