Large print keyboard

Designed to make using the computer easier for people with sight loss, large print keyboards feature letter and number keys in a bigger size than seen on a typical keyboard. Some can feature lettering as much as four times the size of that on a traditional keyboard, while others may include different colour contrasts to help differentiate between the keys easily. With so many to choose from, it can be difficult to know which is the best for you. We’ve broken down the main features of different large print keyboards currently available so you can decide what you need.
