The software is designed to show a keyboard and mouse controlable
glass. Once you click the glass will desappear and go to the system
tray as a small icon. To reactivate it, just click on it´s icon on the
system tray. You can also right-click the icon to change magnification
factor, glass size, language, etc.

The hability to interact with other software while the glass is active
is planned for the next version, and we already started to implement
it. It is a quite complex job, and will require that the system meets
some special requirements, like having X Composite Extension

We call this the "dynamic mode". Unfortunately because of the special
requirements it won´t be as universal as the current system, so the
user will be able to enable/disable it.
