WinKing Keyboard: Some people find it difficult to use a normal sized keyboard. Larger keyboards can help in situations where it is difficult to accurately locate a normal sized key top.  Many larger keyboards have a "built-in guard" as the letters are slightly sunk beneath the surface of the keyboard. This means that the user can rest their hands on the keyboard without pressing keys.  The benefit of this keyboard is that it allows you to control both keyboard and mouse functions, so it's great for people who have difficulty maneuvering the standard mouse.  All mouse directions, right and left click, double click, and drag functions are performed by pressing directly on keyboard keys while in Mouse Mode.

  • All mouse and keyboard functions can be executed from one unit
  • Built-in key guard
  • Tactile and auditory feedback from keys
  • Adjustments for keyboard response rate, key repeat rate, mouse tracking speed and MORE!
