Pointing Magnifier v1.6.2
The Pointing Magnifier is a two-stage pointing technique. During the first stage the user controls an area cursor of arbitrary size depending on the pointing accuracy of the user. To interact with a target, the user places the area cursor over that target and activates it by clicking any mouse button. This causes everything under the circular cursor to be magnified, and the cursor is pinned in place. While magnified, the user controls a standard mouse pointer inside the magnified area. Upon performing an action (e.g., clicking, dragging) in magnified space, the pointerís location is transposed so that the interaction occurs at the correct position in unmagnified space. After the user performs an action, the Pointing Magnifier returns to its original size and the user resumes control of the area cursor.
There are currently a few known issues which we have documented in deploying the Pointing Magnifier to Windows, however most functions are fully supported.
Mouse-over and hover state are not supported by the Pointing Magnifier because mouse position can only be passed to underlying applications when a click occurs.
When activated, the Pointing Magnifier must capture the mouse, removing it from other applications. However, pop-up and dropdown menus close when they lose mouse capture. Therefore, menus must be drawn on top of the Pointing Magnifier, which allows the user to interact with the menu directly, even if magnification is temporarily unavailable. (See the picture at the right.)
The Pointing Magnifier does not work with other third-party software such as ZoomText which also magnifies the screen.
The Pointing Magnifier requires the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. Download it here.
