English term or phrase: audio scan cue
The audio scan cue button allows users who need auditory scan cues to program them into the buttons that they will be scanning
coreen
French translation:"Signal audio de sondage"
Explanation:
Here is the definition I found:

" Audio Scan Cue- allows text to be programmed for use as a spoken cue when a person needs auditory feedback as a Symbol button is highlighted "

It sounds like the equivalent of pointing with a mouse to a symbol on a button on your screen: it shows what this button does (e.g. right now, if I point to the little letter on my Netscape window, the program brings up the words "inbox"). It seems as thought this program does the same thing, but with spoken words that you can program in yourself, for visually impaired persons.

I haven't been able to find anything equivalent in French, so perhaps you need to select a translation yourself. I made a suggestion above. You could also use something like:

"Signal audio d'exploration"

"Interprétation audible des symboles"

"Signal audible d'inspection"

Or you may be able to think of something yourself that you find more appropriate...

Good luck!
