Keyboards with Lowercase Letters


As the majority of people beginning to read and write use lower case letters it is often beneficial for them to have a keyboard that does not use capitals. This can be done in a number of ways.

Lower case stickers can be placed on the keys. As these are printed in contrasting colours they can help people with visual difficulties.
A keyboard is available with lower case keys already fitted.

An overlay keyboard or on-screen keyboard using lowercase letters can be used as an alternative method of input.

Where the computer is being used by different people it may be useful to have two keyboards available, which can be exchanged as required. Adaptors such as the Y-key-key allow you to connect two keyboards to a computer or laptop making switching between them quick and easy. Experience has shown that upper case letters may cause less difficulty than imagined as many learners are already familiar with a standard keyboard.

As the majority of computers are fitted with a standard keyboard learners should be introduced to capital letters as soon as possible so that they will be able to use any computer.
