Magic Cursor

Magic Cursor is another program that works with the Tracker. When we have patrons come in with movement impairments (i.e. paralyzed or with extreme tremors) we have a series of equipment available to facilitate the use of our computers. While someone is using the Tracker to navigate the computer, they can use Magic Cursor to click and double click on programs and the like.


When the single blue dot is selected, the Magic Cursor is set to click once on each item. When the double blue dot is selected, it is set to double click. The 'L' and 'R' are Left and Right click. The way the patron clicks is if they leave the cursor in the same spot for more than a second, it begins a countdown to the click. There is a time bar that fills in to let the patron know it is about to click. If they don't want to click on something, they just need to move the cursor before the time bar completely fills.
