Highlight your mouse pointer and cursor position

Mouseposé is the indispensable mouse cursor highlighting tool (aka virtual laser pointer) designed for presenters, trainers, and teachers. It’s made for everyone who wants to demonstrate on stage at tradeshows, in training sessions or while recording screencasts. 

Focus your audience’s attention.

When activated, it dims the screen and shines a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audience’s attention to an area of interest.


Spotlight on your mouse cursor

We call it the „Mouseposé Effect“:
To highlight the area of interest around the mouse pointer, just hit a configurable hotkey and the entire screen is slightly dimmed and just a circle around the mouse is highlighted. An elegant start/stop animation is designed to draw your eyes toward the mouse pointer, wherever it might be hiding. The whole effect, including the size of the circle and the intensity of the dimming, can be extensively customized to your liking.

Keystroke visualization

Demonstrators of software and workflows need to show keystrokes to their audience and give them a better understanding. Mouseposé helps by making the key strokes visible. Now your audience can easily follow along. Just don’t forget that they even might follow if you type in any password.

Highlight mouse clicks

The audience will be able to follow you much better throughout your presentation if people can clearly see what you are doing. In contrast to a simple laserpointer, not only does Mouseposé highlight the mouse pointer, it also visualizes mouse clicks by drawing a red circle (or two or three depending on the number of mouse clicks) around the mouse, enables you too choose a sound to be played when the mouse is clicked and lets you pick different colors for right and left mouse clicks.
