Note that the Atari Touch Tablet, the KoalaPad Touch Tablet and the Suncom
Animation Station are read by the computer in the same way that the computer
receives data from paddle controllers, making software designed for these 
graphics tablets at least somewhat usable with paddles as well.  See a
separate section in this FAQ list for a list of programs supporting these
graphics tablets.
