C6WH8 - Which switches can I use with Clicker 6?

Applies To

  • Clicker 6

Symptoms

You are a switch user and would like to know whether your switch interface is compatible with Clicker 6.

Resolution

We provide direct support for our own Crick USB Switch Box in Clicker 6. Once it is plugged into the computer, you can start using the switch box with Clicker 6 immediately - no further software is needed. 

Can I use other switches with Clicker 6?

Indeed you can! Clicker 6 has a documented set of keyboard presses that can be used to perform the same functions as switches. For example, with one or two switch scanning enabled within the program, the F7 and F8 keys can be used instead of actual switches to control the scan. 

Whilst Clicker 6 can not be directly used by other switch boxes, nearly all switch boxes work by emulating keyboard presses such as Space or Enter. If you can configure your switch interface to use the F7 and F8 keys when Clicker 6 is open, this will mean that you can use your existing switch interface to control Clicker 6.
