Semanux Access integrates into your everyday computer life as unobtrusively as possible, so you can concentrate fully on what you want to do.

After you have started Semanux Access, the small Access icon appears in the notification area of the taskbar. With a click on the icon you can open a context menu with the following options:

  1. What's new?

    This will open the "What's new?" window, which will notify you about new features and improvements of the software after an update of Semanux Access. By clicking the checkbox at the bottom of the window you can control whether they window should show up after each update.

  2. Set up again

    This allows you to set up Semanux Access again. Setting up again may be necessary because your Semanux account credentials have changed, or you simply want to go through all the basic settings again. Your settings will not be reset immediately when you set up Semanux Access again; if you were to run a re-setup and always just click "Next", nothing about your settings would change at all.

  3. Play tutorial

    This will open the tutorial window. The tutorial helps you to learn how to control Semanux Access. You can also just run the tutorial for fun and play it as a game.

  4. Show settings

    This will open the settings window. In the settings you can control how Semanux Access behaves. There you can find all sorts of things, from inputs over interactions to coloring.

    You will find a few things under Set up again instead of in the settings: the entry for the activation code or the login to your Semanux account, our privacy policy, the end user license agreement and under macOS the sharing of access rights.

  5. Toggle pause

    With this you toggle the pause. You turn it on when it is currently off and vice versa. The pause is handy when you want to watch a movie with your computer in peace or when you are in a video conference.

  6. Open help

    This will take you directly to our online help center.

  7. Quit Access

    With this you can close Semanux Access. You can also quit Semanux Access with the key combination Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Q, no matter what program you are in.

Info for pros: Many elements of Semanux Access are displayed on top of your other programs. From the panel and the context menu to the virtual keyboard. We implement this with an invisible window that sits above all other content on your screen. So we call it "overlay". You won't even notice it. But don't be surprised if you come across this window in the task manager or elsewhere. In the overlay Semanux Access shows you everything you need to control your programs with our innovative controls.

Although you can replace mouse & keyboard with Semanux Access, it also allows you to use mouse & keyboard as usual and combine them with Semanux Access. You don't have to configure anything, it works directly. The only thing you have to consider is if you have assigned a keyboard shortcut in Semanux Access. The keyboard shortcut is then reserved for Semanux Access and you cannot use it for other programs.

Now you know how Semanux Access is organized. In the following sections you will get to know the individual functions in more detail.

Continue in the next section with the trace, trigger & dwell time.
