Hello, I have my braille display connected, and when I'm playing a file with Winamp in focus, the braille display sort of blinks a mixture of the title of the file I'm playing, and some asterisks. It blinks so fast that it's not useful, and it's constant. I don't want to have this happen, both because of the noise it creates, and the wear on the braille cells unnecessarily. I've looked through Winamp's preferences, and can't find anything that helps if I change it. When I go into the braille options for Jaws, the only thing that makes a difference is when I change the attribute rotation. That slows the blinking down, but there's no way to turn that completely off that I can find. Is there something else you can think of that might help?

Thanks a lot.
