If you happen to undergo presentations or demos and need something to point out some text on the screen then you will find this tool extremely useful.
The tool is called MouseShade and is useful for all those who undergo lot of presentations or demos. If turned on, it dims the screen and puts a spotlight on the area around the mouse pointer, easily guiding the audience attention to an area of interest.
The tool is highly customizable that even the colour, size and opacity of the spotlight can be varied according to the needs. The settings that are used currently get saved for the next time even if the application is closed.
When in use, the shade can be minimised, giving a clear view of the whole screen, and can then be reactivated when you need to highlight a specific part of the screen by clicking the Show option on the menu.
