SmartNav Tip: Finding Your Center Point

SmartNav's unique software offers two methods for users to find a center point, or position the cursor. The relationship between a user's head position and the location of the cursor can be changed by using either Absolute or Relative Mode. SmartNav Software: Movement Tab These settings can be found under the Movement tab in your SmartNav software.

The Absolute option allows a fixed relationship to be set between the location of the user's head and the cursor position. The user establishes a center point on the screen and then presses the CENTER Hotkey (F12 by default), to set the position. Once the position is set, abrupt head movements will not cause the center point to be lost. Absolute mode can be helpful for people with limited head movement.

The Relative option positions the cursor in a similar method as a traditional mouse, by bouncing the cursor against the edges of the screen. While using Relative Mode, the cursor can be brought to center by pressing the CENTER Hotkey.

Try both positioning options on your SmartNav to determine which is best for you.

"I am a quadriplegic with only the ability to move my head. Next to my wife, my computer is my life. I use Dragons Naturally Speaking to give my voice access to the world but it is SmartNav that gets me there. That little spot on my glasses means the world to me." – Customer from Canada (February 2008)

"I have several of your previous hands free mice. A couple of months ago I bought a SmartNav 4, and just now sat down to explore it. Let me say WOW! You folks have really been hard at work. I am very pleased with its accuracy, adjustability and stability. I also enjoyed the thought that went into your dwell clicking. Thanks to one and all." – United States (August 2008)
