DPWH10 - Which switches can I use with DocsPlus?

Applies To

  • DocsPlus

Symptoms

You would like to know whether your switch interface is compatible with DocsPlus.

Resolution

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

Can I use other switches with DocsPlus?

Whilst DocsPlus cannot be directly used by other switch boxes, most switch boxes work by emulating keyboard presses such as Space or Enter. If you can configure the switch interface you are using to use the F7 and F8 keys when DocsPlus is open, then enable one or two switch scanning in DocsPlus, this may allow you to use the switch interface to control DocsPlus.
