When you say ‘Stroke It’ the first thing that comes to mind is not a piece of software :D. However this post is about a really cool application that lets you control Windows programs through the use of unique mouse gestures. Say for example you want to change the volume level of a media player – with StrokeIt around, you wouldn’t have to find the volume slider, click and drag it in the application. Instead, you can ‘train’ the program to recognize a mouse gesture. All you have to do is to hold the right mouse button and draw the mouse gesture (previously trained) to increase the volume.

It’s not easy to explain this program’s functionality in a blog post such as this. You’ve got to try it out for yourself to experience it’s ‘awesomeness’.

Developer Description

StrokeIt is an advanced mouse gesture recognition engine and command processor. What is a mouse gesture? Mouse gestures are simple symbols that you "draw" on your screen using your mouse. When you perform a mouse gesture that StrokeIt can recognize, it will perform the "action" associated with that gesture. In short, it's a nifty little program that lets you easily control programs by drawing symbols with your mouse.

StrokeIt can currently recognize more than 80 unique mouse gestures and can be easily trained to recognize many more. For each gesture recognized, StrokeIt can execute a user-defined set of commands within the active application. StrokeIt commands are defined within plugin libraries that can be easily created by third parties to do nearly anything.
