The Cordless Switch Interface provides a place to plug switches into a computer, without having to connect a cable to a computer. It has 2 switch inputs. When you plug a switch into one of its 2 jacks, the switch(es) ‘become’ standard mouse-clicks (Win: left, right; Mac: left, control-click), and with installation of the accompanying SwitchHopper for Windows (SAM-X for Mac OS X) software, you can configure each button to 'be' any mouse-button event or keystroke you’d like!
The Cordless Switch Interface does not interfere with the operation of other pointing devices, such as a mouse, which retains all of its normal functions. Some people get these to be able to control a cursor on a large screen and move a switch around the room, away from the computer.
