BJOY Stick A is a joystick mouse with a sturdy design and a full range of configuration options that allow the users to set it up according to their individuals needs. The device is specially designed for people with poor strength in arms and hands.
The main features of the device are:
BJOY Stick A mouse is made up of the following parts:
The joystick allows the cursor to be moved in all directions. The cursor’s speed depends on the inclination of the joystick.
The device has four buttons to perform the clicks and actions of a conventional mouse: left click, right click, double click and drag and drop (equivalent to keeping the left button pressed).
You can determine the action for each of the buttons using the BJOY Configuration Software. The function assigned by default on the product is:
The four switch inputs provide external switch access to the device. Each switch input is associated with one of the buttons of the device, i.e. both have the same assigned action. Switch inputs are labeled A, B, C, and D.
BJOY Stick A mouse has methacrylate keyguard for the buttons that helps avoiding the involuntary clicks.
To mount the keyguard, you must fit it first at the front of the device as shown in Fig. 3. Then place the keyguard in the correct position.
Once the keyguard is correctly mounted, it should be fixed with the included plastic screws.
It is possible to change the covers and the labels of the buttons. This allows you to choose among different covers (transparent or colour ones) and change the icons used to label the buttons if desired.
To change the covers of the buttons you just have to remove them by introducing an object in the covers slot and pull towards the buttons outside. (Fig. 4).
To start using the BJOY Stick A mouse, it must be connected to the computer’s USB port. Once the computer has recognised the device, you can start using the mouse.
To move the cursor you just have to move the joystick in the desired direction. When you are using the joystick, you should be aware that the speed of the cursor depends on the joystick inclination regarding the central position.
To do the clicks you have to use the large buttons on the device. Figure 2 shows the assignment by default of the buttons function. Drag and drop action is activated by pressing the button once. The action is active until you press again the button.
Take into account that both, the actions of the buttons and the movements of the cursor, can be configured using the BJOY configuration software.
The BJOY configuration software allows customizing the mouse behaviour according to the user needs.
