tips for the elderly

I set up mother with radio sure.

I see a few things that can trip her up (other than lack of tags on mp3s) 1. it hides in tray and windows 7 hides the tray. 2. accidentally clicking equalizer mutes sound. 3. main menu is a right click on equalizer with hidden exit. 4. older folks don't know that squares are stop and triangles mean go.

Seems a tray tip on minimize is needed. And mouse hover over tips over equalizer alerting to mute and right click menu and function of those funny shapes.

Now for those older in our lives that attended woodstock:
I like my winamp milkdrop plugin. I downloaded version 1. Quite the "trip" when used properly. I wonder if such a plugin could be used with radio sure in future.

Just checked and you did hover tips on player controls. Just not over equalizer visualization.

I can visualize a small word "menu" centered under equalizer might help a few older people locate the menu before quitting out of frustration.

Please try latest test version. It works better for Win 7.
