LiveText - quick toggle for macOS 12 Monterey LiveText feature


Recommended Posts

It annoyed me that LiveText activated when I didn't want it (e.g. when trying to draw a marquee in Preview.app) so I came up with this quick little toggler for the feature. Only tested on macOS 12.0.1 on an M1 Mac Mini. Please report any problems!

Hi, thanks for making this. I've been trying it on my MBA M1 but it failed to works. Here is some log:

[21:20:17.932] LiveText[Script Filter] {

  "items": [

    {

      "subtitle": "(please check System Preferences > Language or try again later)",

      "arg": "",

      "valid": "false",

    }

  ]

}
