Niemeijer Consult today announced the release of SwitchXS 1.2, a major update to the company’s switch access software for Mac OS X. Version 1.2 allows the user to select nearly any USB input device as a switch on Panther: switch interfaces, keyboards, mice, trackballs, gamepads, and joysticks; provides audio-cueing during scanning; greater control over scanning and mouse speed for both slow and fast scanners, and more. SwitchXS requires Mac OS X 10.2 or higher (Panther recommended), and sells for US$150.
