sWedge is a little program published by DCS Australia Pty Ltd. This software allows you to convert the data sent by the serial port to keyboard data as if they were typed into the keyboard. Therefore, sWedge lets you use peripherals such as barcode scanners, Bluetooth or magnetic stripe readers. sWedge can be regulated to start automatically and supports any hardware which can transmit data via serial port (RS-232). The demo version has no expiration but each transmitted characters will be translated into `'! ''.
