The reverse also has two small folding tabs for tilt the keyboard slightly. also has two non-slip rubbers that ensures the immobilization of the keyboard before small movements.
The increase in the size of the keyboard implies a variation in its use with respect to the conventional keyboard, since there is a greater separation between the keys and requires a more open position of the hands. If you are in the habit of using a QWERTY keyboard of standard dimensions, it will be necessary to adapt to this enlargement in size.
The keys have a soft touch, but the pressure is significant due to the high relief of the keys.
The CanalTec, which is responsible for channeling the keystroke, gives the user the ability to avoid pressing unwanted keys while typing, but it can also present certain difficulties. The thickness of the CanalTec is excessive, which makes it difficult to press in a horizontal position of the hand on the keyboard, as well as to insert the fingers into the holes. To achieve efficient keystroke, vertical finger movement is required, which negatively affects the goal of supporting the arm and results in an awkward hand posture.
Accessibility for people with reduced vision:
Chromatic differentiation offers an advantage for people with reduced vision by making it easier to identify and locate the different keys.
However, the distinction between the white lettering and the different colors of the keys is not quite clear enough in terms of contrast. Likewise, there are cases of contiguous keys of two colors that have such a chromatic similarity that it makes it difficult to distinguish them visually.
Accessibility for people with reduced mobility:
If the user does not have control of fine manipulation, this keyboard facilitates typing and handling due to its large font size and the help of the channelizer prevents the pressing of several keys simultaneously.
Associating character types with a color makes keyboard interpretation much easier for people with cognitive difficulties.
