Computer keyboards in large print for the visually impaired or for those of us who are experiencing vision loss due to just aging have been available for many years.
There are plenty of manufacturers to choose from and several options, but most of them are based on the Windows PC operating system.Not everyone with failing eyesight has a PC!There are Apple/Mac users who are aging or who have developed Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, and Glaucoma or any other serious eye conditions.
Many Windows PC based keyboard manufacturers claim that their keyboards are Mac compatible . While nearly any USB Windows PC keyboard will work partially on your Macintosh, most of these keyboards have several extra function keys which are only supported on Windows.This means that when pressed, they may very well do nothing, something unpredictable, or worse-case do something you don’t want to happen.Another frustration usersmay experience using a Windows keyboard is that on initial startup a Mac may have problems recognizing the 'alien' keyboard and require users to follow on-screen instructions that can be annoying and time consuming to the user.
