Pointer Noodge icon

Pointer Noodge

Supports OS X 10.9 Mavericks

The third PFiddle in the PFiddlesoft Collection is Pointer Noodge. Pointer Noodge slows down the system pointer, removing mouse, trackpad and trackball acceleration so you can place the pointer exactly where you want it in any application. You can also nudge the pointer one pixel at a time horizontally and vertically using the arrow keys.

Other features include rotating images that track the pointer to help you find it on the screen, a border and highlighting to identify the window, drawer or sheet under the pointer, a text box and optional speech providing the pointer's coordinates and information about the application under the pointer, and a spotlight effect for presentations. Pointer Noodge makes it easier for everybody to use the computer, including users with impaired vision or motor control issues.

Pointer Noodge version 1.1.8 was released in May 2014. It includes code improvements and fixes a few minor bugs.

Applidude icon

Applidude

Supports OS X 10.9 Mavericks

The first PFiddle in the PFiddlesoft Collection is Applidude. Applidude floats over your screen and reminds you which application is currently active.

This is invaluable information—not only if you have a short attention span, but also if you have the ability to concentrate all too well. If you often overlook the name of the active application at the left end of the menu bar, you will find it harder to miss Applidude's large display of the active application's icon and Applidude's optional voice announcement every time you switch applications. Applidude is great for users with impaired vision, and for all of us who sometimes forget where we are.

Applidude version 1.1.5 was released in May 2014. It includes code improvements and fixes a few minor bugs.

Waccy Accy icon

Waccy Accy

Supports OS X 10.9 Mavericks

The second PFiddle in the PFiddlesoft Collection is Waccy Accy. Waccy Accy is a game based on Apple's Accessibility and Event Taps APIs that is pfun for all users, including those with impaired vision. The more you play Waccy Accy, the more familiar you will become with where things are on your desktop.

To win Waccy Accy, reveal your full user name by flipping the placards displaying placeholders so they show their hidden characters. You are playing against the clock, and your best time will be recorded for posterity.

You can't type your name on the keyboard. Instead, move the mouse over text elements on the screen. The first matching character in the title of any eligible UI element counts. Don't waste time clicking it, though. As soon as you mouse over it, the corresponding placard flips to display that character. There are lots of catches that make this harder than it sounds, but there are also lots of cheats to balance the scales.

Waccy Accy version 1.1.5 was released in May 2014. It includes code improvements and fixes a few minor bugs.

Watch this video of Waccy Accy in action. It only hints at how hectic game play can be. You can also view screenshots. To read Waccy Accy's instructions, go to the Waccy Accy Features page, open the Waccy Accy Help book in Waccy Accy's Help menu, or simply click the Instructions button on the game board.
