It's not just in games Tom that I find this useful.

in winamp or power dvd I can flick Hal's voice on to deal with config, or selecting a new folder to listen to, ---- then flick it off again and just use keyboard commands as normal, without Hal saying "X" whenever I start Winamp playing etc.


Doing this I was able to actually customize power dvd's time skip feature to exactly 91 seconds, which very nicely skips the voyager opening theme, ---- which I'd otherwise have to sit through many times sinse I've been doing a a full watch through of all 7 series (I'm mid way through series six currently).

Pluss, I now know the vastly important information that voyager's opening sequence is exactly 92 seconds long, ---- which obviously was invaluable to learn!

Beware the Grue!

Hi Dark,
As I said with Window Eyes 7.11 I don't have to unload the screen reader to play game x. I just tend to do so for personal reasons. I guess the techie side of me. Although, I am glad to know I don't need to unload Window Eyes when playing as that does free me up to chat on an instent messenger client or check on some task i might be running in the background like a very large download.

funny Tom, I've never felt the need to with hal, and haven't experienced slowdown or anything similar.

Indeed, there have been occasions when I've played a bit of a game, flicked out of it, turned Hal's voice on to read E-mails or deal with other matters, then gone back to the game.

This is especially true of games where I have to wait for some reason, ---- like Che martin's card games waiting for new players, ---- or even waiting for your character to regain health in technoshock (which seems to take ages).

I also flick Hal's voice off when watching dvds for the same reason.

I'd actually miss this feature quite a lot if it wasn't possible to use.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
