J-Pad is a unique, highly intuitive joystick interface providing
ergonomic switch access to iOS Switch Control. Instead of needing
to remember what each switch does in a typical switch-based
configuration, J-Pad’s user-interface makes it obvious. If the user
needs to scan upwards, then move the stick upwards. Similarly, to
scan to the right, move the stick to the right. To select, touch the
green switch and to close an app, touch the red switch.

The red and green buttons are entirely touch sensitive using
similar technology to a touch screen, so no pressure is required.
Alternatively, external switches may be plugged in via the two
3.5mm sockets, in which case the touch sensitive switches are
disabled, allowing the user to lean across them without fear of
145 x 90 x 70mm high.

Siri has become a very valuable aid to users with disabilities so
J-Pad fully supports Siri access.
