I faced with the using the verb "to bridge" in IT context (as an example below), and I am not sure whether it is right to use it in a sense of connecting smth to smth. For example,
For using the microphone, pick "bridge" device up in your laptop sound settings.
The speakers have to bridge automatically, if not follow aforementioned directions.
As far as I know the verb "to bridge" is used only in the context of building physical bridges and I couldn't find any other example of usage.
Also are there some words which could define the different meaning of connecting the device to another device physically and electronically (like through the PC program)?
There is a device called "bridge" in IT field, as Tetsujin have mentioned, so using it in different sense could be confusing.
