Touch-Con: Computer Screen Touch-Sensitivity Indicator

      Disclosed is a method for indicating the touch-sensitive
objects on a computer screen.

      A dim target symbol is superimposed on the object that is touch
sensitive.  The target symbol has a central bull's-eye and several
concentric rings, which indicates to the user that the symbol is a
place to touch the computer screen.  The target symbol appears dim in
color and brightness to reduce distraction and allow the user to
clearly see the touch-sensitive object underneath the target symbol.
