Editors' Review Staff May 21, 2013

When giving live or recorded computer presentations, the mouse pointer can be easily lost to viewers. Highlighter for Mac focuses attention on the pointer, but lacks any other features for presentation that would make it more useful to most users.

While it downloaded and started up without any problems, the program did lack technical support. Fortunately, Highlighter for Mac's basic purpose and operation made the lack of user instructions or tutorials moot. At startup, the only thing that happens is a red circle that follows the pointer around the screen, highlighting it for easier viewing. There were no options for changing appearance or the circle's color, but when the mouse button is clicked, the area in the circle zooms in slightly for a moment. Highlighter for Mac doesn't offer any other functionality, but it does do exactly what the publishers promise it will do.

If you need to give more emphasis to your presentations, Highlighter for Mac offers one solution to help your viewers follow along.
