How to prevent that participants makes an immediate choice (before reading the problem)

Sometimes you would like a delay between the presentation of the decision situation and the possibility to make a choice. This can be easily done in javascript. The relevant buttons are only displayed some seconds after the page is loaded. In the body statement you refer to a javascript function opdracht(). The javascript opdracht() waits 5000 milliseconds before referring to another function vulin() who than fills in the field with id 1 the html code for the submit button.

<body onload="opdracht()" text=#000000>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
	function opdracht()
	{setTimeout("vulin()",5000);
	}
	function vulin() {
	document.getElementById("1").innerHTML = "<input type=\"submit\" name=\"verzend\" id=\"button\" value=\"verzend\" />";
	}
</SCRIPT>
<form>
	//Here other elements of the form like inputs or radio buttons, submit button appears after delay
	<p align=center>
	<div align=center id="1"></div>
	</p>
</form>
