Overview What’s in the box Technical

How does scanning work?

Scanning is useful for those who do not have the physical ability or energy to use a full keyboard. The keys will light up row-by-row or key-by-key and are selected by activating a switch. Switches can be activated by hand, foot or head, or operating a sip/puff switch by mouth. They can also differ in pressure sensitivity, size and texture in order to suit an individual's needs.
