For a user to be able to use the keyboard, he needs to have a voluntary movement control. If you do not have fine manipulation control, this keyboard makes typing and handling easier. It is possible that users, with a greater difficulty in the use of the hand, can use the keyboard complementing it with a finger channeler. In the case of people with low vision, it facilitates by its colors the access to it, as well as to reduce the digital gap in the case of older people not familiar with the technology. The operation and handling is simple, although the pressure to perform on it is quite significant, being its relief high. As a final summary we would like to emphasize that this keyboard could be very useful also for children who are learning to read or use computers.

Social valuation:

We validate the product with our volunteer Domo, who usually uses a keyboard with black characters on a yellow background, to favor a high contrast. Its impression with respect to the Colortec keyboard is that, for the profiles of people with low vision, the keyboard is limited, since it maintains the problem of access through sight. The contrast is lower than with the specific keyboards of the yellow keys, although it was very positive that the functionality keys were differentiated by letters and consonants by another color.
 
Our volunteer was the one who highlighted the importance of incorporating reliefs on the keys and the usual lines of the F and J keys, which have their usual keyboard. As for the effectiveness of the operation of the tool is adequate and agile, linking the pressure of the key with the action programmed for it.
