New "Keys-U-See" large print keyboard is easy to see, easy to read.

One in twenty Americans experience some level of visual impairment due to low vision, eye disease, or advancing age. For these people, using a computer is just one of the many activities that can become frustrating, because the print on a standard keyboard is usually too small to be easily seen. One solution, of course, is a keyboard with larger print.

The new Keys-U-See large print keyboard (www.keys-u-see.com), introduced this month by The Key Connection, is designed specifically to reduce the stress and strain a visually impaired person has to grapple with when he or she is using a computer. From the ABCs to the numbers and the punctuation marks, each key in the keyboard is labeled with the largest print that will fit the keycap. The Keys-U-See keyboard has provided the largest print available on a standard-size computer keyboard.

This user-friendly keyboard also has hot keys for emailing and navigating the internet and multi-media control keys. Power control and energy-saving options are also right on the keyboard. Another useful feature is that the directional navigation keys (or arrow keys) are molded so that each is recognizable by touch. The Keys-U-See keyboard is available in ivory with large black print, black with large white print for low light situations, and also black with yellow keys and large black print. Note that these color combinations are chosen for their visibility factor.

Unlike most specialty products that are normally priced higher than their run-of-the-mill cousins, the $34.95 price of the Keys-U-See keyboard is right for the pocket book, and lower than many other standard keyboards on the market.

With all it has going for it, the Keys-U-See keyboard is sure to gain quick acceptance, if not advocacy, among senior citizens, low vision organizations, schools and other educational establishments. And for companies and government departments implementing Assistive Technology adaptations in the workplace, Keys-U-See is an affordable solution.

For the millions of visually impaired persons, The Keys-U-See keyboard makes using the computer easy again!

Keys-U-See is a product from The Key Connection (www.customkeys.com), a supplier of computer keyboard products such as foreign language keyboards, custom printed keycaps and customized keyboards. Recently acquired by Genesis Worldwide Enterprises, The Key Connection has been serving the computer keyboard market since 1991, from providing OEM solutions for Fortune 500 companies to helping individuals make their computer experience more personal, enjoyable, user-friendly and efficient.
