The Clevy Keyboard is an attractively designed keyboard, designed to help teach writing and keyboard skills to young children. Its design also makes the Clevy Keyboard very suitable for keyboard users with a wide array of special needs.
The keyboard’s large keys, font and color coding make it so much more easy for her to distinct the letters and hit the right keys. Typing also costs much less energy than writing from a motoric point-of-view, which makes working on a computer a great learning aid.

As the General Director of an organization that promotes the inclusion of people with special needs through assistive technology, the Clevy Keyboard is perceived as a great product for our business as well as the end-users, since it contributes to a better life for them. From our experience in communicating with the end-users, the strength of the material and the feature of turning off key repeat are most valued, since these allow them to type efficiently and freely. Moreover, Clevy has great products in general
The font in which the characters are printed onto the Clevy Keyboard’s keys is similar to the font used in traditional education of hand-writing, which makes keys immediately identifiable.
The keys of the Clevy Keyboard are 30% bigger and the characters on them even up to 4 times bigger than those on an average keyboard, making them simpler to find and easier to hit.
The differently coloured keys cleverly represent the different functional areas and make the keyboard fun for children to work with.
The keys are arranged vertically to improve positioning of the hands and to make the appearance less cluttered. Unnecessary, distracting keys are left out.
Clevy keyboards have internal steel frames and each individual key is mounted onto a high-quality, mechanical switch capable of handling well over 50 million keystrokes. Most keyboards on the market use membrane-type internal switches, which are far less durable and consistent.
The keyboard’s housing is designed to guide possible spilled fluids straight through the keyboard, keeping these liquids away from the internal electronics.
Key repeat can be switched off with an on-board switch, causing a letter to appear on the screen only once no matter how long a key is pressed. This same switch also enables the use of function keys by pressing the letter “f” and the respective number (eg. f+1=F1).
The Clevy Keyboard is also available in a Bluetooth version and a wireless version as part of the Simply Works range, the World’s first fully integrated wireless system specifically for users with motor skills difficulties.
