How to Use an RJ Cooper Switch Interface for Scanning

Your Tobii Dynavox T10 supports both autoscan (the software will automatically scan the page - you select the scanning speed, scan pattern, and number of passes) and two-switch scanning (Switch 1 advances the scan, and Switch 2 makes the selection).

To set up your T10 for scanning, you must set up a Bluetooth wireless connection ("pair") your T10 to the switch. Following are instructions for pairing your T10 to a RJ Cooper Bluetooth Switch Interface for scanning.
