Mary These days there's uh there's time out and things time out on you so you can be doing activities - an activity - on the computer when you think 'oh good finally finished' you hit the send button and it says 'sorry you have timed out'. So that's - people that are developing these sites really need to look at the timing out issue, but certainly it would assist as an accessibility tool for someone to say 'Hey listen I might need more time to do an activity'
