The ability to generate a video file showing precisely what a person is looking at through a task can be invaluable. As the technique requires the use of screen recording in order to show what the person is looking at, it instantly provides all the benefits of that along with the benefits gained by seeing what the person is looking at while the mouse cursor is static: typically this is where the person attempting the task is hunting for a link or piece of information.

Beyond the video file that allows a session to be viewed comfortably at any point, it is possible to identify areas of the screen of interest. This allows statistics to be generated which can be analysed to provide invaluable information such as how often a person looks at key information you want them to see.
