SwitchJump on Sensory Live!

Switch Jump is a switch accessible fun activity to introduce using an Access Switch. This is a fun activity for early learners and others who may struggle with more complex games or activities.

Click or tap the button and the app will launch filling the screen or window.

If the app fills the window, maximise the window to full screen and the app will run as full screen.

Press ESC key or click/tap the X button to close the app.

There are 8 jumping challenges, each with 14 varied courses of increasing difficulty. The challenge is to get the blue square through the obstacle course, and a switch press makes the square jump. If you crash, then it starts again and counts the number of attempts until you succeed.There are settings to change the speed of the activity and also the size of the jumping blue square.

Switch Jump is also potentially a useful tool for therapists and helpers to observe reaction times and progression through the activity.

Switch Jump supports touch tap, keyboard input, bluetooth switch, Microsoft Adaptive Controller and XBox Controller.
