I need to purchase switches for my AT. Which ones should I buy?

There are tons of switches (a.k.a. buttons that can be placed just about anywhere) on the market. You can find switches for a variety of ways to play, including: light touch, rigid, and even ones called “twitch switches,” which can be placed on a muscle such as your calf or eyebrows. You’ll want to do some research to ensure you are buying ones that will work best for you.

If you need something different, like a mouth switch or sip and puff switch, EnableMart has a variety of switches that range in size, touch requirements, and how they’re used. Make sure that for any switches you purchase uses a 3.5mm jack. Unfortunately, many of these switches are very pricey, but it’s a great place to start. Xbox also has a forum on what external devices work with the XAC.
