Is there a program that I can use as a

  • highlighter
  • pointer
  • zoomer

on Mac OS X (10.6.2) during presentations?

I don't have and don't want to use hardware one.

Hightligher/poinger? Should not be highlighter/pointer? – kiamlaluno Aug 30 '10 at 0:53

Additionally there is Mouseposé. Not free but does more than OmniDazzle. It also offers the ability to show your keystrokes on screen.

I know that you only asked about mouse pointer/highlighters for presentations, but another thing that is useful at the same time is keystroke highlighter or on screen display. In fact, I found your superuser post when I was looking for just the keystroke highlighter. :-)

Anyway, I eventually found something: KeyCaster

Combined with OmniDazzle and you have a full presentation kit for highlighting your mouse and keyboard actions.
