Warning about the new XP Windows Highlighter utility.
- Hi all,
We have just discovered that you can download something called the
"Windows highlighter" from the Windows XP Update site. This is a utility
which can add additional visual indicators to the screen to show the
position of the beam cursor and the focus rectangle, so it may be of use
to partially sighted users. It is only available for Windows XP.
I want to warn users of our Speech products, Hal, LunarPlus and
Supernova, that running this utility will cause all sorts of problems
with your speech output. The way that the highlight is drawn on the
screen obliterates some of the information in our off screen model. I
recommend that you do not install this utility if you use Hal, LunarPlus
Users of Lunar are unlikely to encounter any problems, however we have
not done any extensive compatibility testing yet as we only found out
about this new utility today.
