"In a world in which computing has become as pervasive as the air we breathe, many don't realize that in addition to keyboard shortcuts and the emerging field of voice recognition, there are ways to minimize the amount of work one has to do with the mouse. Graphics designers will particularly like to hear about Sensiva."

"The program will even allow you to download plug-ins that will enhance the capabilities beyond the bundled features. Developers are invited to download a development kit. Average users can extend the capabilities of Sensiva, one command at a time, by drawing a symbol with the mouse (or loading a set of predefined symbols) and assigning it to a desired command. After doing this, performing the same motion with the mouse will perform the desired command."

"The Linux version of Sensiva still has a long way to go before it reaches the functionality and feature richness of its Windows and Mac cousins. I tested the Linux version using GNOME. Installation was a breeze. Unfortunately, this version has proven that it works only on the desktop. Though it comes with configuration files for Netscape Navigator, Navigator did not respond to Sensiva for Linux."
