[prMac.com] Montreal, Canada - Lagente Software today is pleased to announce version 3.6 of PinPoint, the popular mouse enhancement software used by screencast professionnals and presenters to help their audience locate the mouse on screen. PinPoint, which helps audiences follow-along presentations and demos and help the visually disabled use their computers more effectively is available on the Mac App Store for $2.99 US.
We have listened to our users and added the most-demanded features. says Marcie Lewis, PR representative for Lagente. PinPoint has been very appreciated by presenters, but also many users with visual disabilities, or simply users with many screens who are having a hard time finding the pointer on screen. We are constantly listening to their needs and enhancing PinPoint to reflect the feedback we receive and the new Keyboard Visualizer and custom pointer are the result of this. They add to our other popular features like the Full Screen Crosshair unique to PinPoint.
PinPoint provides the user with a series of animated graphics which are displayed around the mouse pointer. Many shapes, behaviors and animations are available, including a Full Screen Crosshair mode, and pointers with visual click indicators. The utility is a favorite of many podcasting enthusiasts and tutorial sites and a boon to educators as well, who appreciate the help it provides their audiences in locating the pointer in various on-screen demonstrations.
PinPoint can also be used as an aid for the visual impaired. The animations help users with strong visual impairments locate the elusive pointer, especially on large monitors. Some people have a very hard time seeing the small mouse pointer and they need graphics which are displayed at certain angles, are just outside of their focus point or flash brightly. The new Custom pointer allows users to design their own graphics to be used with PinPoint to get just the right effect for their eyes to follow the mouse.
