Thoughts on overlays

I like the overlay system, and I had a suggestion for possibly improving it. I was thinking it would be nice if overlays darkened the screen only when creating them. After an overlay is created, there are numbers on the screen so it’s obvious the overlay is active. So it seems like there’s no reason to keep the screen dark or gray. I really like voicecomputer, so thanks for everything.

Personally I think the overlay concept is the best invention since sliced bread 😂. Nothing beats VoiceComputer!

The overlay background btw can be completely transparent if you set "Transparency of Overlay Background" to 100 in the "Configure Intags font size and colors" menu (say "Configure VoiceComputer" to get to these options). I know, I requested this feature 😁. The bluish tint gave me a headache and it wasn't needed while creating the intags either.

In addition I like to set the "Font color for my Intags" to Black and "Background color for My Intags" to White and "Transparency of My Intags Background" to 20. This gives a really natural look (in Thunderbird for instance).

Thanks for the tips.

I would also like the overlay to be completely transparent, it is indeed difficult for the eyes if the screen becomes so dull. But I tried to change the settings, according to the suggestion above, but it didn’t work. I’ve tried about five times making the transparency of the overlay background “100”, but it doesn’t save. I give VoiceComputer and Dragon the chance to restart, but every time it is reverted again and the option is empty. image

I think that there’s a way that end-users can change the background color of the overlay screen.
I’ll look into it.

The problem with this is that the overlays are always in a ‘creation’ mode. You can add or delete tags at any time.
