Thanks for the rant, Phil, but...did I mention blind or visually 
impaired users anywhere in my original question? I'm of course well 
aware that, by virtue of the software creating a visual grid on the 
screen, this will be useless to somebody who cannot actually see the 
screen...so I'm not quite sure why you felt the need to clarify the 
obvious point here? I thought it was obvious that I was asking in the 
context of users with limited motion...
