With your GlassOuse V1.1, you can perform the clicking action via biting the bite-click switch.

If you use GlassOuse V1.2, you can do the clicking action via Dwell software on macOS  or Accessibility features of your Android devices.

For Windows, we suggest to use 3rd party free software such as ClickAid or Point-n-Click to make right clicks, double clicks, drag’n drops, scrolling up and down etc.

For macOS, you can use Switch Control panel under Accessibility section in System Preferences. Switch Control panel will give you all commands you may need under Pointer tab and you do not need to download any extra application.

For Linux, you can right-click by holding down the left mouse button. To enable this

1.Open the Activities overview and start typing Universal Access.
2.Click on Universal Access to open the panel.
3.Press Click Assist in the Pointing & Clicking section.
4.Switch Simulated Secondary Click to ON.

You can change how long you must hold down the left mouse button before it is registered as a right click by changing the Acceptance delay.

To right-click with simulated secondary click, hold down the left mouse button where you would normally right-click, then release. The pointer fills with a different color as you hold down the left mouse button. Once it will change this color entirely, release the mouse button to right-click.

If you combine your GlassOuse V1.2 with GS01 Bite Switch, clicking action is done via biting. With GS02 Puff Switch, clicks are made via simple puffs. And with GS03 Finger Switch, you just simply press the switch with any part of your body. Lastly, with GS04 Foot Switch, you simply press the switch with your foot.

We recommend to calibrate your GlassOuse when you connect it to a new device or if the cursor moves abnormally (e.g. vibration, sliding etc.). The entire process can be completed in two minutes.

  • Press the “Reset” button.
  • Place GlassOuse on a flat surface. If you are using GlassOuse V1.1, the cable of “bite-switch” should be in a suspended position.
  • During calibration process, LED light will turn to red from blue for a second. When the LED is red, the calibration is completed.

You can set your GlassOuse’s mouse sensitivity in two ways.

  • Upon your choice, press “Reset” to activate GlassOuse.

If your head is not in a comfortable position while the cursor is in the middle of the screen or simply dragging the cursor disturbs you, push the cursor to the edge of the screen first and then readjust its position according to your comfort.
