Programmable Keyboard
is a programmable alternative keyboard that plugs into any computer running Windows. It enables students with physical, visual or cognitive disabilities to easily type, enter numbers, navigate on-screen displays and move the mouse.

The Intellikeys is a membrane keyboard. This means that very little pressure is required to press a key and it can support an endless variety of overlays. Plus it can be fine-tuned for different physical needs and it has input for two switches

  • Overlays - An overlay is simply an image of a keyboard printed on to a piece of paper a little larger than A4 ('American Foolscap'). These overlays slide easily in and out of the keyboards and the pre-made selection that come with the keyboard have little barcodes on the edge so they are recognised automatically. The overlays allow the keyboard layout to fit each individual - allowing pupils to use larger or smaller keys, upper/lower case, different colours, alternative layouts such as ABC instead of QWERTY... there are even overlays designed to move the mouse around the screen.
  •  Accessibility - it has built-in features that allow even those with some of the most severe physical difficulties to use it. The keyboard comes with a special setup overlay that gives you easy access to these features. The newer USB version allows you to access these options through a system tray icon as well. This overlay allows you to change the response rate and repeat rate. It also supports a required lift off, sounds on key pressing, repeat on/off, repeat latching, shift key latching and locking. These features are designed to help those who hold their fingers on the keys too long, and for those who tend to inadvertently hit other keys on their way to the key they're after. The Shift key latching allows users to perform key combinations by pressing one key at a time instead of trying to hold down two or more keys simultaneously. Microsoft Windows has these accessibility features built in as standard for any keyboard.
  • Switches - The keyboard has two standard jack inputs on the left side. These can be used in most switch applications now!
