Fingerprint board for Apple IIc

I recently picked up this Apple IIc and discovered it had a fingerprint board inside which is tapping directly into the CPU.

The IIc runs fine with it plugged in. However, it doesn't do anything when I press the button. I can't find the manual for this card anywhere. I have found the manual for the version that goes in the Apple II/II+/IIe. I also tried running the VDAP program that goes with the regular Apple II card, but that said it wasn't installed. Does anyone have the manual or a version of VDAP that would support this card??

You can see a bit more detail in the video I did about this IIc at 16:47 https://youtu.be/XVxfU1y2GnM

Any help or suggestions are appreciated!

Well, I still haven't found a manual for it, but I was able to fix it! Turns out the membrane fingerprint key connected to it was worn out which was the first thing I tested. :) You can see my efforts here https://youtu.be/Bvh3f0QK508 at 34:16. If someone finds a copy of the manual for the IIc, let me know.
