On the back of the controller, there’s a line of 3.5 mm jacks (a total of 19 of them), which is the standard connection for assistive input devices.
If the setup process sounds a little too complex or difficult, don't worry because there's a default profile already set up on the controller. You'll have an option to set up 3 custom profiles, too.
The controller is set to come out a little later this year at $99 each.
