Mouse and pointer settings in Grid



Grid is designed to work across a range of different access methods, some of which need configuring. Learn how to set up access for mouse and pointer.

Pointer settings

In Grid explorer, open the Menu. Then select Settings > Access.


This setting allows you to select how a cell is activated –

  • Click
  • Hold
  • Dwell
  • Press switch

Depending on the access method selected, further options may be made available e.g.

  • Dwell time
  • The appearance of dwell timer

Accidental activations can be reduced by using the slider under Activate. This adds a delay to the cell to prevent immediate reselection. The delay can be as much as 10 seconds.

If the toggle to allow repeat activations is set to On, repeat selections will be allowed regardless.


Change the way that the cell you are pointing to is highlighted. You can change the colour of the border or background and magnify the cell.

Computer control

These options are for mouse activation, switch to click or zoom to click for computer control within Grid.

Choose between no click, dwell to click, switch to click or zoom to click. Further options will be available depending on the activation method.

Zoom to click

This allows pinpoint accuracy by gradually zooming in on a target on the screen. The level of magnification and zoom time can be adjusted as required.
