I am designing a VB app to help handicapped people type and I have two questions related to keyboards and ports. Anyway, here we go...
First, I would like to connect a laptop, from it's serial, to the keyboard port of a host computer. What type of cord, hardware would I need. Second, what signals are used by a keyboard and are sent to the computer, i.e, hexidecimal values, .... Is there a reference, on the web or a book, describing how to manipulate a keyboard with these signals.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. - I know little about hardware. :-)
