USB Switch Interface Plus

Our recommended switch interface

This is the link between single switch input devices and Macintosh or PC/Window computers with USB capabilities. The interface is utilized by software written for 1 to 5 single switches. The jacks fit a standard 1/8" mini plug for which adapters exist, if necessary. It provides easy access to Intellitools Software, and Kurzweil System

A wireless link allowing 3 switch input for the Swifty above.

The Beam is generally used by those with adaptive switches that wish to break the hard connection between the switch and Swifty. Often this is a power wheelchair owner that wants independence from an attendant for connecting and disconnecting his or her switch.
