19 Instructions
20==============
21(NOTE: as of version 1.4, the instructions manual is included in the software)
22
23First install and configure your web camera before using eViacam. It's very
24important to configure your camera in manual exposure mode and adjust this
25parameter to get about 25 fps or more. Most modern cameras can deliver 30fps.
26Please check your web camera manual when necessary.
27
28Once installed run evicam (evicam.exe for Windows). The application should
29open, automatically detect your camera and begin streaming the live video.
30
31Place the camera to get a frontal view of your face. The width of your face in
32the image should be a third of the width of the frame. Centre the tracking box
33around your face either moving the camera or displacing the on-screen blue box
34with the mouse (clicking at the corner).
35
36Enable the tracking function from the File menu. Try moving your head and see
37the result. You should adjust the sensitivity (X and Y axis speed) from the
38options dialog.  You should be able to reach all the screen area with the mouse
39pointer.
40
41For clicking simply stop the pointer over the desired position. In few moments
42a click will be generated automatically (you can adjust the dwell time in the
43options dialog). You can use the docked window at the top of the screen for
44selecting the different kinds of clicks.

59Asturian language yet, but it seems that support has been added to development
60version. So, if you want enable Asturian language support, you need the latest
