Whatever it is, the Mac’s keyboard is a delight to use except for two things. It’s either too noisy. Or, it’s too loud. If your hearing is good, you’ll notice the sound of Mac users banging away on their keyboards. If you need to hear the audio feedback of keyboard and mouse or trackpad, the Mac is just too quiet unless you use Keyclick.
For Mac users who need some aural feedback from keyboard, mouse, or even the trackpad, Keyclick is one of the few apps you can use. Keyclick gives you options to increase sound volume and pitch for every keystroke.
Keyclick can be setup to provide an auto-repeated character, but not for modifier keys. It works in real time so you hear sounds as you type the key.
Keyboard shortcuts make it easy to adjust the volume from the keyboard.
For die hard typists from yesteryear, there’s an option for typewriter sounds. You can also exclude specific apps. One of the benefits of using Keyclick is the aural feedback– it actually helps you reduce the need for visual feedback as you type.
Most Mac users will need to enable access for assistive devices in the Mac’s System Preferences. Start Keyclicks by using a low volume setting and then raise the volume as you need, so as not to interfere with your Mac’s audio settings.
Keyclick is a very handy app. It’s not for everyone, but if you need a little more sound that the clatter of the Mac’s keyboard, this is where you get it.
