Something happens, right? But you don’t see the actual click or key move on the screen. When you use the Mac for a presentation or video clip those keystrokes and mouse clicks are not visible. Here’s how to make them visible on the Mac’s screen.
The app is called Visualize and it does exactly what you expect. During a presentation, as you press a key-combo or click the mouse or trackpad, Visualize displays the action on the screen– not afterwards, but during the action.
Visualize makes it easier for a presentation audience to follow along by viewing the actual keystrokes and clicks while you click, but it comes with a number of useful presentation features, too.
For example, Visualize lets you choose to display keystrokes or mouse clicks. For keystrokes that pop up on the screen, there are settings for fade-in and fade-out, background color and opacity, even font and size, as well as where on the screen the keystrokes are displayed.
For the mouse, adjustments include displaying left and right clicks, plus color, radius, and opacity of the click, which is rendered as a circle around the click for easier visibility.
With visualize running during your presentation or screen video capture you can display all the keystrokes and mouse clicks to others can view exactly what you type or click, and you have complete control over how each looks onscreen. Nicely done, not expensive at all, easy to setup and use.
