Keyclick is an OS X preference pane that provides adjustable audio feedback for keystrokes, mouse clicks, scroll wheel movement, and trackpad gestures. Using Keyclick can improve the perception of keyboard responsiveness, or fill in the missing audio feedback when using tap-to-click or two finger scrolling on trackpad equipped computers.

I'm using a beta of Sounds4Fun v2.0 (22) for
keyboard clicks.

Works great in Mavericks.

Downloaded from developer.

Thanks ... Ken

Just noticing your comment. This is probably an Xcode build issue related to running on 10.5 . Please Email me directly to resolve the issue.

I love this app, and used it for years after trying others. But with my new Macbook Pro i7 (March 2010 model), it seems to dramatically reduce the battery life. Apparently it keeps the CPU active even though it uses only about .2% of CPU. Activity Monitor shows it constantly active.

Uninstalling it gave me about an additional hour of battery life - the difference between 4 and 5 hours. I am still experimenting, but it looks like I'll have to uninstall it except when I'm at a power source.

Update, early 2014. BATTERY PROBLEM SOLVED. I've been using it without visible battery hit, since Apple improved its energy-saving methods in OS 10.9. (The OS now "bunches" intermittent activities together, so that the CPU is turned to a higher state much less often when not much is happening.)
However, I have been unable to re-register the darned thing. I follow the instructions carefully, I corresponded with the author, and still no joy. So my trial period will run out in a few weeks = frustrating. It's worth another $8 to me, but the problem is not due to my particular code.
By the way, I am running version 1.3.4, and the update function says there is nothing newer. So I'm not sure why Macupdate says 1.3.1 is the latest!

I used to love this little utility, but I eventually stopped using it, because it would just suddenly stop working on a regular basis, then I'd have to go into the preference pane and turn the effects off then back on. Honestly, it's been so long since an update that I'd pretty much given up on Keyclick. I'm glad to see this new Snow Leopard compatible version. I think I'll give it a try and hope that my old issue doesn't pop up again.

There was a subtle timing related bug in Mac OS X Leopard that could cause a previously loaded sound file to no longer play. This did effect some users from time-to-time. The work around was to adjust the keyclick volume to force the sound file to reload.

I filed a bug report with Apple, and after some investigation they reported the bug would be fixed in Snow Leopard. I haven't encountered the problem since upgrading. As always, I welcome user reports. You can Email me directly at psichel "at" sustworks "dot" com.

Enjoy!

This is one of my 5 most needed utilities.
Used it for over 2 years.

Once you get used to it you will never
like a quiet keyboard.

Try it! Stable and easy to use.
Thanks ... Ken

Just downloaded the demo, quite sure I'm going to pay it when it expires.

I'm kind of professional writer and I love hearing the sound of the typewriting machine when I'm writing.

Just a couple of things: I can't see all of my apps in the exclude/include list (maybe it's because some app is "nested" into a folder, but it's annoying). Second: it would be great if I could set different sounds for different apps: i.e., a little click for normal apps, just for feedback, and the typewriter sounds for wordprocessing.

Anyway, great app.

I'd love to know what apps you're not seeing. You can write me directly at psichel "at" sustworks "dot" com.

Keyclick doesn't list apps with names like "Daemon" or "Driver" to make the list simpler.

Problem resolved!

The exclude list only displays the "process name" of applications that are currently running. To see other apps, you have to launch them first, and then "refresh" the list. Once you've selected a process, Keyclick will remember your selections between system restarts and application launches.

The reason is that Keyboard events are always targeted to a process, not applications stored on your hard drive. Choosing a process name from the list allows Keyclick to associate which process(es) it should not play sounds for.

Kind Regards,

- Peter

While it doesn't quite solve the problem of "mushy" keyboards, the audible feedback really does help one's typing. As the author suggests, set the volume at just barely audbile. Especially nice on my G4 iBook.

Damned thing is rather addictive, actually -- I really notice its absence when I use my PC at the office.
