Excellent Low Vision Keyboard
Sly Fox Hug, Amazon
11 December 2013
Summary: I already had this keyboard but it got damaged during a trip and I need a replacement. For people with low vision, this board is excellent. Not only is the print large but the keys themselves are large also. I also use a zoom text keyboard but often make mistakes due to the smaller keys.
Summary: Most Impressive. The first keyboard I ordered for a new build would not allow the computer to boot. So I had to pay to ship it back a week later to Newegg (grumble). The new keyboard arrived and worked fine for a few days and the user reported today that the keyboard was producing numbers or symbols...
Summary: wonderful. got me through my early stroke days so I could keep writing my column. Love the hard "snap" of the keys, the built in USB hub, its sturdiness and, yes. its easy vision, honey bee color scheme.
Summary: Keys are very visible which is why I purchased however the keys are so big the finger reach is a lot farther apart it has slow reaction time and it is very noisy. It takes a while to get use to it but if you need the visual help it's very easy to see.
Summary: I'll probably keep this keyboard for when my vision gets worse. Unless I find something better, with better key click action. This is an expensive keyboard given the poor key click action.
Pros: This is a low vision keyboard with the largest keys of all that I have seen. It lacks a number keypad. But who cares because it has really large keys which the main reason to buy it.
Cons: Key click feel is bad. None-existent. Key click is very important for physical feedback that tells you that you really pressed the key enough to get it to do the job. Sometimes I have to hit the key twice. Buy it if you need really big keys. But beware that the key action feel is non-existent. IO...
Summary: it is only for someone who types with one finger on each hand- because you cannot type on it normally. i type 50 words per minute but i was forced to type this comment with one finger on each hand- too slow for someone who can type like me- what was i thinking? lol- i guess i'll have to return it..
Summary: I bought the white keys rather than yellow. The keyboard arrived defective. The C key doesn't work at all, the F key only occasionally works, and the keys generally are insufficiently sensitive.
