tft and epillepsy

It is my understanding that tft screens do not flicker like CRT ones and are thus less of a risk to epilleptics. Could someone please put me right on this?

as an aside I use a laptop with a projector on a regular basis for presentations and wander if the same holds true for projectors.

Thanks in advance.

There is no actual 'flickering' as with a CRT and TFT are easier on the eye. However, playing games etc with 'flashes and bangs' could still trigger a 'seizure' I assume.

Many thanks as to the confirmation regarding the screens.


any advice regarding the projector please?

Perhaps better if I put the projector question as a different thread.

i may be wrong, but i wouldn't have thought a projector flickered at all, at least no more than a light bulb can. (not including the content of what's being shown on the projector)
