Switch Options (Internal and External)
The Blue2 has two built-in switches, one white and one orange. These switches can be used to active two independent functions in any of the six available modes. You may also opt to connect an alternative switch to the Blue2. This can be done by using either (or both) of the 3.5mm connections on the back. Please note that any switch connected to the Blue2 will emulate the same function as the built-in switches. They cannot be assigned independent functions.

Configure Blue2 with an App
There are many applications in the marketplace for Blue2 supported hardware. We recommend finding an application that works with keyboard keystrokes (see "Pairing Details"). Most apps that are built with accessibility in mind are intuitive in terms of setup, but if you find an app you like, we recommend accessing the user's manual for accessibility features and options.
