Last loan user review

This was a very useful and worthwhile piece of hardware. XXX has limited motor control and finds standard keyboards difficult to access. he will benefit greatly from using it in P1. XXX enjoyed using the keyboard as did all the other nursery pupils.

The coloured keys further confused XXXX as they were too dark for him to make out. "I found black and white keys are easier for me to see."

Nice piece of equip. Pity that the position of the keys are not staggered like a normal keyboard - also the k 'M' in different location due to layout. Makes things harder to use both kinds of keyboard.

Thought it was great.

Equipment excellent but the user's MS is now too advanced for her to use it.

Met clients needs physically, but upper case letters were sometimes confusing. Satisfaction - 6/10 as letters prevented clear analysis.

Very useful, however keyboard does not match the normal keyboard and learners do feel singled out!

SOME OF KEYS LOCATED IN DIFFERENT PLACE TO A NORMAL KEYBOARD - CAUSED CONFUSION.

Liked concept, but due to combination of visual problems and upper limb function - it was too difficult to use.
