Answer:

You can attempt to extend your display onto another monitor using the TRITTON USB/VGA adapter. The Tritton SEE2 USB 2.0 SVGA Adapter model #TRI-UV100 has been tested to work. The Windows XP driver for this adapter are pre-installed on the Open devices. You may need to install drivers for use with Windows 7 devices like the Maestro. Note: Tritton no longer manufactures this item, but you can find it from other online retailers by searching for the make and model.

To extend your display to an external monitor, follow these steps using a USB mouse:

1.     Connect the Tritton USB/VGA adapter to an open USB port on the V/VMax device. 

2.     Connect the external monitor to the Tritton adapter.

3.     On the device system tray (next to the time on the Windows desktop) right-click on the 'UV' icon.

4.     Select USB-VGA (Extended) from the list.

5.     Now, you can drag other programs to the extended display.


Note: In some cases, there are issues with the responsiveness of the DynaVox when the display has been extended to a separate monitor.
