Touch Apps User GuideBack
All of our Touch Apps have built in support for using a switch, connected to the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch via a Bluetooth switch interface, as an alternative to touching the screen.
No configuration of the apps is needed, but to make use of this feature you need to have already enabled Bluetooth on your Apple device, and have paired it with the switch interface. The switch must be configured to act as a space key or the sequence of two keys ~1. Operating the switch then has the same effect as touching the picture on the screen.
Note: If using iOS 7 or later, to enable the switch support in these apps you must first turn OFF the device's switch control accessibility feature in Settings app > Accessibility > Switch Control.
If you have problems caused by switches unintentionally being pressed multiple times or being held down, you can alleviate this by adjusting the options in Settings app > General > Accessibility > Keyboard > Key Repeat (available in iOS 9 and later).
We have tested using the APPlicator switch interface and Smoothie 75 switches manufactured by Pretorian Technologies Ltd. Other switches and interfaces should also work provided they emulate a Bluetooth keyboard with space or ~1 keys. In fact, you can also use any standard Bluetooth keyboard that works with your Apple device, by pressing its Space Bar.
