Dwell Clicker 2 allows a user to access the mouse or pointing device without clicking buttons. The person simply points to an area on the screen and leaves it in that position. After a specified time, the application automatically clicks where mouse is resting. This dwell time is adjustable in the settings menu.
This program is ideal for people who use alternative pointing devices (joysticks, head pointer, etc.) or have a repetitive strain injury.
Dwell Clicker 2 is easy to learn and set-up. The basic features include: rest to avoid unwanted clicks when not moving pointer, left click, right click, double click, drag feature to move things across screen, on-screen keyboard, and ability to adjust settings.
It comes with additional features including target snapping that makes it easy to click on specific items, buttons on screen; visual dwell display provides progress bar to measure time to wait before automatic click; and click clock allows the user to lock a type of click to prevent return to default left click.
The application provides a 30-day full access trial period available for Windows XP or later. After the trial, the application can be purchased for £10.00. If unpurchased, the user will still have access to basic dwelling features, but will lose access to target snapping, visual dwell, and click-lock.
