Clikka Mouse -- Software That “Clicks”By Sutherland, Kent; Gizmag,
Publication Date: December 13, 2011
Article features computer software that works with assistive devices such as head pointers to enable mouse clicking without the need of mouse buttons. The software was designed for people with fine motor disabilities and those recovering from hand surgery. The Clikka Mouse emulates the double, single, left, middle, and right clicks of a regular mouse. The software puts a small bar at the left side of the computer screen which remains hidden when not needed. The user can select which click function is to be automatically performed. The cursor is then dedicated to this particular action and will perform it once the cursor has come to rest on a selected object such as a tab or icon. The program’s Tolerance setting determines how quickly it will select an object prior to clicking, with the highest setting giving the user plenty of time to make a selection before an object is highlighted. The free Clikka Mouse software can be downloaded from websites such as Softpedia and CNET, to which links are provided in the article.
