Inspired by the emacs threads.
I have coordination problems, so can’t type with two hands, and can’t type without seeing where my hand is on the keyboard. I’d like:
A fairly small keyboard.
If it has the Windows Start/Page Up/Page Down/End keys, it shouldn’t squeeze them in next to the enter and shift keys.
If at all possible, it should have lights for active modifier keys, including command, option, shift, etc. when using Sticky Keys. My Mac shows active modifier keys at the top of the screen, but I have to watch the keyboard, so I can’t see the active modifier keys or the results on the screen as I’m typing.
It should be possible to tilt up the left side, for right-handed users, or the right side, for left-handed users, or the middle, for both-handed users.
If it has a keypad, it should be detachable.
It should have a row of computer-setting keys and a separate row of function keys, because as it is, I can’t use shortcuts which involve function keys.
It shouldn’t require users to go through an “Emoji and Symbols” window to get to hvair.
P.S. I’ve had a lot of trouble with Sticky Keys, so I could really use a keyboard that worked well with it. Or a version of Dragon that worked well with the Mac.
