Best Large Print Keyboards for Seniors using PC’s

Best-Large-Print-Keyboards-for-seniors-using-pcs

Dad and I have been working on putting together some tips for our clients on how to have a successful training class. In the process we realized that one of the most important tips we can give is the type of software and hardware we use for our Hands on Training classes.

As Dad was showing me the set-up of the training classroom they have at the Armed Forces Retirement Home I was blown away by the large print keyboards they had set up. I have to admit, I’m just now at the age where I need reading glasses and the print on paper, my computer and smart phone are all needing to be a little bit larger. 🙂  I asked Dad what were the comments and feedback he had received about these large print keyboards and he said the students LOVE THEM!

Take a look at how they have their training room set up and check out those keyboards. I love that they come in yellow and white!

What can I say...I love to teach and watch the light bulbs go off when people finally "get it!" I enjoy reading, relaxing at the beach and spending time with my family and grand babies.

    The keyboard shown in your photo of the training room of the Armed Forces Retirement Home is EXACTLY what we are looking for. Can you tell me anything about it, e.g., how to get one, who makes it, etc?

      Hi Joanie,
      Dad said that these are the keyboards they have in that training room…(Click on the link and it will take you right to it on Amazon) Yellow with black letters – http://amzn.to/2fiz7Yz
      White with black letters – http://amzn.to/2g1lH2v
      He said that they love them and the students are able to see the keys. It’s called EZSee by DC – It’s for the Visually Impaired Individuals, Low Vision, or Low Light for Seniors and People with Bad Vision!
      Hope that helps and you’re able to get exactly what you need. 🙂
      Be Blessed,
      Audrey
