ALTERNATIVE KEYBOARDS

Alternative keyboards can be used by individuals with various impairments but are especially beneficial to individuals who experience pain and fatigue due to repetitive keyboard use. Because alternative keyboards come in many sizes and shapes, individuals with different body sizes and hand shapes, who are limited in fine motor manipulation, may benefit from using them. Alternative keyboards, sometimes called ergonomic keyboards or adjustable keyboards, may be fixed split keyboards, adjustable split, or contoured. Many increase typing comfort, and several can be positioned to accommodate individual preferences, including negative and positive tilt adjustments.

The following manufacturers and vendors can provide information on prices, availability of products, and usefulness of products. If you would like to return to Step 1 and select another impairment, go to: http://www.jan.wvu.edu/soar/disabilities.html.
