HID Class   Human Interface Devices
 
Native support
This is the class for most input devices, such as keyboard, mouse, joystick, tracker ball, touch tablet, laser pointer, etc. Any device that can emulate either a standard keyboard or a standard mouse is supported natively under RISC OS. Others require the USBHID driver.

  Class Description RISC OS
3_1_1 Standard Keyboard supporting Boot interface Native
3_1_2 Standard Mouse supporting Boot interface native

Most USB keyboards and mice will probably work under RISC OS 5. The list below just shows some devices that have been reported by customers to behave correctly. Other devices may work correctly as well. The native drivers do not support any extra keys or functions.


 
 
Keyboard
Below is an overview of some devices known to work well on RISC OS 5. Please note that some devices may contain multiple interfaces, in which case only the first one is shown here. Not all devices are supported natively by RISC OS, and the ones that are, often contain keys that are not support natively. In such cases you need the USBHID driver.
