I'd like to find a couple of Touch monitors (that work with touch via a finger on the screen). Want two of them, for use on a "virtual pipe organ" (Hauptwerk-based) using a somewhat older Mac Pro (the tower), running El Capitan. Can't find much out there in the way of Touch monitors!

Thanks,
Jim

I don't think macos has touch capability yet.

I think that macOS support for touchscreen has actually gone downhill from earlier macOS versions.

Looking at the current situation I think you should start by trying to find developers who claim to have macOS drivers for touchscreen monitors and seeing which monitors they claim will work with their drivers.

There aren't any "touch monitors" that will work with the Mac, because there's no support for them built into the Mac OS.

that is all...

A long time back, there were ways to do this for PCs (and probably Macs) that were OS independent. As the OP pointed out, they want to simulate a mouse click or mouse movement. Given the current state of touch screen systems I doubt if the original solutions are still available or being made. Before it was electrostatic overlays that connected, IIRC, via serial connections. But then again mice were serial mice, not USB as we have now.
