I put together a very simple stack that "kind of" does what he was looking for:

It's a bit "hackish" with the hidden fields and can probably be coded
more elegantly, but filtering the text seems to do pretty well in my
testing with Win 7. Although I haven't done so, you can probably grab
the coordinates for the cursor position and have it pop up along side
each time.

Best regards,
