The key to computing: BigKeys LX keyboard
Sometimes all it takes is a little thoughtful redesign to help adapt a product for someone with poor eyesight or hand-eye coordination. The BigKeys LX from Greystone Digital is a novel take on the standard keyboard, with large keys and labels.
The BigKeys LX replaces a standard keyboard for use with either Windows or Mac computers; no extra software is required. The keyboard has most of the keys we're used to, but at 1-inch square, they're four times the size of traditional keys, making them easy to locate and press. Note, however, that it has a somewhat odd layout, with many special-character keys off to the right, and the large key spacing requires some getting used to.
The keyboard costs $159 and comes with a five-year warranty. Both the traditional QWERTY and ABC formats are available. The keyboard can be ordered with white, black, yellow or multicolored keys for easy recognition.
