This page has a bit of general information about my cursors and how and why I made them, and other general stuff which didn't fit anywhere else.
Being vision impaired, I use several things to make using the computer easier, 'computer glasses', a large monitor, large fonts and large cursors. It is because of this last that I have created this page. I have made some cursors of my own, which I'm putting on this page so that anyone who wants them, can download them. I'm not the most artistic person, but please look through what I've made and see if there's anything you like.
If you want to distribute these cursors in any way, please do, all I ask is credit for my own work. (I.E. give me a mention). If you're going to charge money, you need to obtain my permission first.
Please send me E-Mail on what you think of any of the cursors, or if you think I am a bit artistic, and would like me to make some cursors for you, please let me know and I'll be happy to have a go at it.
If you are unsure how to install cursors, don't worry, it's not hard at all! I have made a page with instructions for installing windows cursors.
I made all the cursors using the very good (and FREEWARE!) Cursor Dance from ZD Net. If you want to make your own cursors, I highly recommend it, unfortunately, I don't know where it is available anymore. If you know, please email me via the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page.
I have tried to make the cursors fairly visible on most backgrounds, many of the cursors have a bit of 'inverse' in them, that is, they are the inverse colour of the background they are on. This works fairly well on most colours, except dark grey, where the 'inverse' colour also appears dark grey, so I have tried to include a reasonable amount of either white or black or other colours so the cursors are still visible, even on a dark grey background, where many cursors with lots of 'inverse' fail because dark grey inverts to dark grey.
I have put an image of each of the cursors here, so that you can see what they look like before downloading them (animated for animated cursors). Each image appears with four cursors, the cursor on a black background, the cursor on a dark grey background, the cursor on a white background and the cursor on a blue background (where the inverse is yellow).As an example comparison, here is a picture of the windows standard cursor in the same style as my cursors are previewed here:
