  Do I need special software developed for a kiosk?
  There are software’s designed especially for kiosk.

  Can I use my mouse and keyboard simultaneously along with a touchscreen?
  Yes, there are touch screen products which are designed to work along with a mouse, track pad, and/or keyboard. The touch screen will work along with a PS/2, USB, or serial style mouse. But this is possible, if you have two serial ports. If you are using a serial touch screen and also a serial mouse, you will need to have two available serial ports (Com 1 and 2).

  Can the touchscreen respond to two touches / two fingers at the same time?
  No, the touch screen can only respond to one input at a time. It response depends on the type of kiosk you are using. Some touch screens will average together multiple touches, causing the mouse cursor move to a position between the points touched. Some touch screens will accept the first touch and then ignore simultaneous touches.

  Is there a software program that will turn my non-touch monitor into a touchscreen?
  A normal computer monitor is not so high tech to be able to detect the touches to the screen so there is no way to make it a touch responsive display through software. It requires some necessary hardware, which is absent in a normal computer monitor. There are software’s for kiosk, but it also needs some hardware settings. The only way to convert a standard PC monitor into a touch screen monitor is to add the necessary touch screen hardware. We have low cost touch screen add-ons that can be mounted onto most monitors, and we also sell fully incorporated monitors that have the touch screen hardware built-in.
