Drivers Catalog ⇒ Input Devices ⇒ Full list of devices

Input devices are peripheral or hardware devices that are designed for a user to be able to “communicate” with a computer. With the help of them, a user interacts with the machine sending data to it which can be modified anyhow also via input devices. A user’s queries that are entered using some kind of input devices are translated into electronic signs that are native for a computer only in the case if there are drivers for input devices installed.

There are several types of introducing digital data to a computer:

  1. Graphic data input devices: scanners, video cameras, web cameras, frame grabbers, digital cameras.
  2. Text data input device: keyboard.
  3. Audio signals input devices: microphones, dictophones.
  4. Pointing input devices: mice, trackballs, joysticks, touchpads, light pens, styluses, touchscreens, graphics tablets (digitizers).
  5. Gaming input devices: joysticks, game controllers, wii remotes, dance pads, etc.
There are some input devices which perform special functions. For example, among them are optical character readers, optical mark readers, bar code readers and magnetic ink card readers.

Optical character readers are input devices that scan printed texts and turn their content into the code that a computer recognizes, ready for further processing or storing.

Optical mark readers are input devices able to recognize a mark made in pencil or pen. This device is very useful for checking examination answer sheets where examinees are given multiple choice questions.

Bar code readers are another kind of input devices which are made to scan bar codes and present them to a computer. Bar code readers can be hand-held and integrated into a stationary scanner.

Magnetic ink card reader is an input device which is mostly applied in banking sector for reading code and cheque numbers that are printed with magnetic particles-containing ink.
