When having participants respond using the keyboard, SuperLab offers two choices:
Caution must be used when wanting to use both options in the same experiment:
This is because SuperLab then has two input plug-ins trying to access the same physical device, the keyboard, which leads to access conflict. This access conflict can be managed using the following steps.
In the Participant Input Dialog
We need to perform a similar step for “Keyboard-String Input”:
Next, you need to create at least one response for each of the two input plug-ins. This is done in the Responses tab.
In the Event Editor Dialog
With the options set as described above, SuperLab will now no longer be looking for a response from participants unless the event defines a correct response. This is important: if an event is expected to look for a response but does not have a correct response defined, SuperLab will go into an endless loop.
Consequently, for every event, make sure that one of the two following things are set:
