||Responses are defined as a XID protocol signal from a Cedrus Response Box on the serial port, where n specifies the port number (e.g., XID1, XID2, XID3, ...).|
||Responses are defined as a parallel port signal, where n specifies the port number (e.g., LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, ...).|
If keyboard, serialport1, serialport2, lpt1, or lpt2 are selected, the specific keys/values to navigate backwards and forwards through the pages are specified by the PrevKey and NextKey attributes, respectively. If mouse is specified, the mouse cursor will be visible on the screen and subject may click on the forward and backward buttons.
The following sets the default input device for instruction pages to the COM2 serial port:
