    hi Gary, does High Sierra have the screen recorder? Shift-CMD-5 does not work for me and I don’t see it in the Keyboard Shortcut in Preferences

    Nick: If you are way back in High Sierra, it is very different. Screen recording is in the QuickTime Player app.

    I would prefer Presentify over Mouseposé as they increased the price by a lot without providing any extra features.

    Hi Gary, I’m using Joyoshare Screen Recorder and I know it can highlight cursor, which releases me from many complicated steps. Maybe it can make things easier if you just use a third-party tool. What do you think?

    Lamer: Not sure what you are asking,. If your third-party tool offers this, then why not use it? The idea in this tutorial is to show different ways to do it.

    Hi Gary, this is great into. I have two questions, and both are related to Zoom (the video-conference software, not the accessibility option). First, I saw Presentation Assist in the App Store, but several users noted it doesn’t work while screen sharing in Zoom. Do you know of an alternative? My second question is, do you know of a way to be able to zoom into your screen during a Zoom presentation? When I have tried it in the past, I can see it, but my attendees cannot. Thanks!

    Brent: Sorry, I’ve never used that Presentation Assist app so I don’t know what it does. Sorry, I don’t know of a way to magnify part of the screen while using Zoom. Isn’t there a feature built into Zoom for that? I’ve never looked.
