5.36. Play a sound when a windows tooltip pops up: COBRA+CTRL+U

# Original: windows-Quickinfos über Sound signalisieren / nicht signalisieren: COBRA+CTRL+U

With COBRA+CTRL+U you can enable and disable to let COBRA play a sound when a Windows Tooltip (Boublehelp) is shown on the screen.

These bouble help also known as tooltip are shown when Windows will tell you something about a graphic. Normally a sighted person will move the mouse pointer to a graphical logo (an Icon) and Windows will present a tooltip telling what this icon is for.

You can define that COBRA shows such tooltips emediately when they are poping up. But this will disturbe you most of the times.

So you can enable that only a sound will played when a tooltip is shown.

And when you have the time to hear what the tooltip was you can press COBRA+U . This will show the last tooltip as COBRA Quickmessage.

This sound is one little ticking or clicking when the tooltip appears on the screen. To hear or change this tone please go to COBRA menu, Extras, Sounds and select "Tool tip" in the list of sounds.


With COBRA+U COBRA will present the last shown Windows tooltip as COBRA QuickMessage. With COBRA+Shift+U you can enable and disable that COBRA will present a Tooltip emediately when it pops up.

All these settings can be defined in COBRA-Menu, Extras, Preferences .
