The Auditory Breakout Box is a computer accessory designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. The box consists of two functionally separate parts. The first part works as a standard "breakout box" which allows users to create individual wiring schemes for the serial RS-232C computer interface. The jacks are arranged in the same physical shape as the commonly used 25-pin plugs and sockets, so that no numbering system need be devised for users with blindness. The other part consists of two audible logic probes which substitute for the red and green lights that indicate the status of various lines. For example, this feature can be used to monitor whether or not information is being sent from a computer to a printer. An audio tape that includes samples of the sounds the device makes is included.
