Keyboards for the visually impaired: improved accessibility and typing experience

When someone suffers from low vision or visual impairment it is harder to use a keyboard. The small keys aren’t very visible, the black layout and white characters don’t pop out, and the use of a keyboard can be frustrating. But since its use has become so common and you can’t avoid using a keyboard anymore, there should be an easy and better solution for. So that frustration no longer occurs, and everyone can easily use a keyboard.

From kids keyboard to Clevy Contrast keyboard

At first, we made a keyboard with extra big keys and large characters on the keys. This colorful design was specially developed for kids in education. After some time, we discovered that a lot of people with low vision or visual impairment used the “kids keyboard”. This gave us the idea to make a redesign. And our white and black color scheme keyboard was born.

White and black color scheme keyboard

Clevy Contrast Keyboard has 30 % bigger keys than on a regular keyboard, and the characters on these keys are 4 times bigger. We selected these keys because they are easy to hit and very visible. We arranged the keys on this keyboard vertically to improve the positioning of the hand and to make its layout less cluttered. The white and black color scheme draws attention to the qwerty area, and we left out a lot of keys for a clean look.

In conclusion, we made these products to help people who get frustrated using a normal keyboard, because they can’t see the keys or the characters on them. We thought out a lot of features for people with low vision or visual impairment. Are you interested in one of this keyboard? You’ll find our extra visible product below!
