HID stands for Human Interface Device, a class of USB devices including mice, keyboards, joysticks and other input hardware.

  • Configuration of keys and scroll wheels on extended multimedia keyboards
  • Per-application control of the mouse scroll wheel (including horizontal scrolling)
  • Extended keyboard handling via Alt-key combinations
  • Joystick support
  • Keyboard control of music player applications such as DigitalCD

HID is sold by X-Ample Technology, who are the company behind the long awaited Impression X.

HID is unrestricted shareware and costs £10 or €15 to register.
