Sonar

Description

This package provides an expanded ring around the mouse pointer for users who have difficulty locating the pointer. Unlike the Windows XP version, this package places a permanent ring around the pointer. This version introduces the option to vary the colour of the Sonar ring.
June 2008 – Added the use of ALT+s to show / hide the ring when required, version now 4.1

March 2009 – Completely rewritten, now version 5. Sonar5 takes the principles of previous versions of Sonar and improves them. This version can be used either installed on your hard disk – when it stores it’s configuration data in your user area, or stand alone on a pen drive, when it stores the configuration on the pen drive. Either through the icon in the Notification area of your taskbar or through the relevant keyboard shortcut, you can access the Settings dialogue (CTRL + ALT + A) where you can change the shape to either a circle or a square, alter the diameter of the shape, alter the width of the line and change the colour. Whilst running, the application can be hidden and restored by clicking on Show/Hide or by using CTRL+ALT+S. Finally, this version of Sonar sits above the menu’s in Windows, providing identification anywhere. One point to note. Windows Vista Aero causes Sonar5 to work incorrectly, therefore if they are enabled, Sonar 5 will turn off the Aero functions until it terminates.

LetMeType

Description

LetMeType works independently of the program you enter the text into – be it a word processor, the editor of a development environment or a dialog box field.

LetMeType can be used for arbitrary Western languages and even in mixed language environments. It works best for long words or phrases that are frequently typed. Therefore it is best suited for software developers and people who use a lot of technical terms. (Which is not to say that people who just write informal email will not find it useful.)

LetMeType’s behaviour is highly customizable. You can set the maximum number of suggestions and their frequency. For skilled keyboard artists it is possible to limit the suggestions to long words with a high probability, while others can gradually increase the number of suggestions. Unobtrusiveness is important for both groups. The window containing the suggestions is displayed and removed quickly, and you can always ignore it and continue typing.

Two other important aspects are privacy and security. LetMeType only stores single words, but no continous texts. There also is a secure way to prevent passwords entered into other programs from being monitored and stored by LetMeType.
