    help ... for people with eye disabilities, who have a tunnel vision and dont see whole screen, but only part of it, is quite a problem to locate a cursor ... PC has option to clik CTRL and concentric circles appeared around cursor so you can quicly locate it. where can i find something to help locate cursor at MAC computer ... i am new user of MAC, i adore it :)

    thank you!

    You can change the size of the cursor in the Mouse pane of Universal Access in System Preferences. There are some other features in Universal Access that you may be interested in. :)

    The omnigroup has Omnidazzle. Not free, but it in addition to being able to find the mouse pointer easier, it adds some interesting special effects.

    Hmm... what mac do you have? It requires 10.4.6 and a core image video card.

    I used to use this feature frequently but I recently got the wireless Mighty Mouse and the ctrl plus scroll feature to zoom is a fantastic help.
