multiSwitchBox USB foot switch connector adapter and integrated solutions

The milliSoft multiSwitchBox USB is an external adapter box to connect footswitches or foot pedals to a compter using the USB 2.0 connection. Furthermore integrated solutions are available with one, two or four footswitch buttons in a modern metal enclosure. These switches are fully USB powered and no other cable is necessary except the USB computer connection.
The functions you can activate with your feet can be freely programmed by our software driver and can be configured for all key combinations you can imaginge. Furthermore you can program different settings for different active programs. Running a text reading program (like PDF viewer) you can for example configure the switches to scrolling (arrow up/down) while running another program you can configure your switches for pressing the "return" button. This can be done without having to reconfigure the switches because the driver application is application sensitive and detects what application you are running and what is has to send to the application.
