The Dragger is a software utility for manipulating the left, right and middle mouse buttons of a standard mouse or mouse emulator, like the HeadMouse® often utilized by people who have physical motor challenges. Dragger can be used to enter mouse clicks via direct selection (often with an adaptive switch) and by holding the mouse pointer motionless which is commonly referred to as "dwell". The dwell selection function in Dragger is called AutoClick™. When enabled, AutoClick monitors the pointer and clicks the left mouse button when the pointer is brought to rest for the programmable dwell time. If the pointer remains motionless it will not click again. Using the Dragger toolbar this single left click can be turned into a Double Click, Right Click, Middle Click, or Left, Right and Middle Drag.
For example, to Double Click an object using Dragger just hold the pointer over the Left Double Click button for the dwell time and the toolbar button will actuate. Then move the pointer to the object to Double Click and after the dwell time Dragger will Double Click the object. To perform a Left Drag, position the pointer over the Left Drag button for the dwell time and the toolbar button will actuate. Next, move the pointer to the object to drag and after the dwell time Dragger will Left Click and hold the mouse button. Then, move the pointer and the object to its new location and dwell again to drop it.
An essential feature of AutoClick (dwell-click) is the ability to easily turn it on and off. When AutoClick is active every time the pointer comes to rest, for the dwell time, a left click will occur. If a head pointer is being used to control the mouse pointer and the user is attending to a task apart from his computer, the head pointer will continue to move the mouse pointer and Dragger will perform unintended left clicks. Therefore, a button called AutoClick Rest is included on the Dragger toolbar to toggle dwell-clicking on and off . When this button is down (actuated) the entire screen is dwell sensitive when it is up only the AutoClick Rest button is dwell sensitive.
Dragger requires one of the following versions of Windows.
A special note about Windows. With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft also released a less popular version of Windows called Windows RT; which was designed for low power (and low cost) tablets. Dragger does not run on Windows RT.
Dragger uses the Microsoft Windows dotNET (.Net) Framework and in some cases it may need to be installed along with Dragger. If an appropriate version of the Framework is not on your computer, it will be downloaded from a Microsoft server and installed.
