Nib and McNib Clickless Software Overview

Nib™ & McNib™ (Gestures) Click-less Software

Nib™ for PC & McNib™ for Mac work by intelligently monitoring your cursor moves on the screen. When you pause, Nib™ performs the mouse click for you. Nib is our reinvention of a program called MouseTool, which is no longer commercially available. This software allows users to point at the screen and has it click for them by pausing over the icon or file. As most, so default clicks are left clicks a toolbar is displayed so that a right or double click can be selected by pausing over that icon. In a new development Gesture technology removes the need to go to the toolbar for that purpose as the user now pauses over the file or icon to be, say, right clicked, then "Gesture" to the right and return for the software to perform the right click. It then goes back to the default left click.

It is different to other dwell time programs in that it has visual indicators at the cursor that allow the user to see what is happening at the part of the screen they are looking at. It is optimized for web browsing and so you can surf all night (take regular breaks) and not have to click a button. It also has an intelligent break timer that monitors activity and adjusts the time to the next break on that basis. The PC version has the option to disable the keyboard and mouse for the duration of the break.

DragnMove™ highlights text, copies & pastes and moves frames. Users can surf the Web without having to click a single mouse button. Click Count monitors User & Software clicks so users know just how much muscular activity they save. Break Timer sets an interval between breaks as well as the Break Duration. Hotkeys allow keyboard emulation of many mouse button functions and ApplyNib sets different functions in different windows.
