    Sometimes when I hit the keyboard and hit a specific letter, the screen breiefly flashes.

    The only way I can show you an example is if I make a video. I'll do that as a last resort.

    But, for me, when I press the letter d more than once when Adium is in focus, the screen will do the flashing thing.

    Is this supposed to happen? I don't recall it ever doing that a while back. I'm on Tiger 10.4.11.

    It's a setting in System Preferences to flash the screen instead of or in addition to the audio "ding", for people who are deaf or keep the volume muted.

    Can't get on a Mac till I get off work :( I don't remember where it is off the top of my head, but try looking in the Universal Access options. Or type "flash" in the search box.

    I still don't know why it keeps doing it. In Universal Access under the Hearing Tab, I have the box unchecked so it doesn't flash but it keeps doing it all the time.

    It is getting REALLY annoying. Please help! :(
