panning progress bars?


Roger Stewart
 

I personally wouldn't want this. I see no real advantage to it as nothing is moving across the screen as the mouse pointer does and that's where the panning feature works great.  If someone wants to go ahead and make an add on to do this, that's fine with me--I just wouldn't install it but those who want it could be free to use it.

Hi all. How do people feel about, along with pitch based progress bars, an
option to make them pan from left, 0, to right, 100? Any ideas?

I tend to agree. I've also ran into situations where the beeps didn't seem to work as they should, either having a strange popping noise along with the sound or for the shorter progress bars, having a bunch of beeps almost all at once. Had these sounds gone from left to right, I can only imagine how headspinning it would have been. Guess it's why I'd much rather have the tts announce a percentage, much easier on my ears, I think.
Take care.

Personally, I tend to only use a single earpiece in order to keep the other ear on what is going on around me, so it could be potentially a volume fade/increase situation depending on which ear I was using. It also presupposes I put the correct earbud in the correct ear, which is luck rather than judgement. Regular percentage complete announcements are preferable for me.

Cheers
