Computer keyboards



I noticed a supply of computer keyboards that feature large print. I had never particularly thought about the fact that the letters on common desktop keyboards are in just one quadrant on the keys. (This is not of any special concern to me, because I am a touch typest, except when I'm hunting for a less-often-used symbol.)

But, the other thing that impressed me--the keyboards were in Dollar Tree! Yes, they cost only $1.

The thought of picking up a pristine keyboard for so little tempted me--except, unfortunately, I considered the colors to be ugly (yellow keys with black markings).

I've seen them, they are designed to be used by people who's eyesight is not all that good, hence the garish colours.

At first, I wondered if the enhanced keyboard would have larger keys, such as the Bear has asked about for his large fingers. I have imagined typing with large fingers would be like me typing with gloves on.
