    Scrolling text software for pc?

    Hi all,

    We have recently bought a pc for showing school video's and powerpoints throughout the day. It is placed in a corridor ( bolted down !!). My headteacher has asked if I can find a way of having a welcome message running across the top of the programme, saying welcome to our school etc etc. I think we'd like something similar to a news ticker. I've had a brief look on the net and all I can find is tickers for web site's not pc's.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Kathy

    you could do it in a webpage.

    F11 gets rid of the tool bars
    the video could be displayed in the video window
    at the top create a layer the full length of the screen and add

    <marquee>Whatever you want to say</marquee>
