Vision Board II – Keyboard With Big Keys

Vision Board II - Keyboard With Big Keys

I seriously don’t know if this keyboard with huge 1-inch square keys is a good idea, I’m leaning towards a negative feeling because of how uncomfortable it must be to use, and probably a bit difficult too. On the other side I can see the advantages for some kind of people, but it still doesn’t convince me:

No more time will be wasted hunting for the correct key, and more time will be spent typing the e-mails to family, or documents for work. It’s a perfect solution for those with vision or dexterity issues in this computer age.

The Vision Board II comes with 2 USB ports on the right side so you can easily insert USB flash drives or other devices that use the popular interface. The design and colors used are other aspects that don’t please me, I must admit the yellow + black combo really hurts my eyes, so it is good to know that there is a white (keys) + black (keyboard) combination.

Price: $90

    mod*mom,
    I really like your site and I just added it to my RSS reader

    I don’t get it. Unless that person has huge hands, the keys don’t look THAT much bigger than regular ones. The biggest difference is probably the readout for the letters, numbers and symbols.

    But who looks at the keyboard when they type anymore? Most people look at the text on the screen as they type…and someone whose vision was bad enough to need huge letters like that probably has equal trouble reading the letters on the computer screen, if not more.

    So this seems kind of “Meh” to me…

    Christine, letters on the computer screen can become bigger easily, the same thing can’t be said about the letters on keyboads.

    If you only knew how many people still look at the keyboard while typing, you’d be amazed :P

    The Vision Board II and BigKeys keyboard are very difficult to use. A new keyboard just came out, the Morekeyboard (www.morekeyboard.com), and I find in much more adaptable. I have very large hands and my grandfather uses it too!

    I love most aspects of the vision board II, but the lack of a companion num-pad is a real draw-back to the device. I am taking training at the Lighthouse for the Blind and also have problems with my fingers so the machine has done well for me in most things. Now that I am learning Excel I need a number pad with large keys. If they don’t want to make a num-pad they should recommend one.
