There is no such thing as an 'easy' card so that you even don't need to read the question. This addon prevents you from pressing space before fully reading the questions. This is like an antagonist of Quick & Easy addon. Seriously, no one can comprehend the question within 1 seconds. Human's reflex takes about 0.5s.

I have been searching for this for decades! I kept pressing the space bar just after seeing the first word on a few cards and I hated pressing Ctrl+Z if I missed something on the previous card. This makes me think through my answer well. I prefer longer intervals. It's proven that the longer you try to recall something, the stronger connections you make. Excellent addon!

edit: 1.5 s is a tad too long for me. I've set it to 1 s and this feels apppropriate. This has to be done by directly editing __init__.py. I think this is a bit too advances for many users, and I suggest that the delay be set in the add-ons window config.

can you add support to disable it for certain card types, like image occlude.
